The most prevalent cause of cervical cancer is infection with human papillomaviruses
The development of 70% of all cervical cancers can be linked to infection by human papillomaviruses
are commonly found in normal skin of immunocompetent hosts.
Phylogeny of papillomaviruses
and repeated structure of the E6 and E7 gene products.
Diseases caused by human papillomaviruses
There are more than seventy types of human papillomaviruses
, and of these, over twenty infect mucosal tissue and can be sexually transmitted (Storer, 1996).
Researchers had previously shown that exposure to certain types of human papillomaviruses
(HPVs) heightens a woman's risk of developing cervical cancer.
(HPVs), small, double-stranded DNA viruses with a circular genome of [approximately equal to]8,000 bp, are assigned to different genera and species on the basis of their major capsid protein gene (L1) nucleotide sequence, which reflects their tropism (cutaneous or mucosal) and potential to induce tumors.
(HPV) are small, double stranded DNA viruses that belong to family papillomaviridae (1).
8 personal lubricants and determined they are highly effective in blocking infection by certain strains of human papillomaviruses
(HPVs) that have been proven to cause cervical, vaginal and anal cancers .
Detection of human papillomaviruses
in eccrine ducts in palmoplantar epidermoid cysts.
The team inserted DNA from HPV-18 -- one of the papillomaviruses
previously linked to cervical cancer in smokers -- into the epithelial cells and then doused those cells with low doses of N-nitrosomethylurea, a cancer-causing chemical derived from the nicotine in tobacco smoke.
