Presence of Human Papillomavirus and Epstein–Barr Virus in Squamous Lesions of the Tongue

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.329
Pages: 
391-4
Synopsis: 
Twenty-three tongue biopsies were detected immunohistochemically for p16, Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) and Ki67, and real-time PCR and chromogenic in-situ hybridization for human papillomavirus (HPV). Evidence suggested that HPV infection plays a role in the pathogenesis of squamous dysplasia localized on the tongue, but not EBV infections.

ABSTRACT

Background: Several studies have suggested a possible role of human papillomavirus (HPV) and Epstein–Barr virus in the pathogenesis of oral premalignant lesions. This study aimed to investigate the correlation between squamous dysplasia of the tongue and expression of p16 and Ki67 immunohistochemically as well as HPV genotypes with real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

An Assessment of Knowledge, Attitudes and Behaviour Regarding the Human Papillomavirus

Issue: 
Pages: 
58–63
Synopsis: 
The rate of cervical cancer as well as poor screening practices led to the study which was conducted on the St George’s University campus in Grenada. The results showed lack of knowledge about the relationship between human papillomavirus, cervical cancer and the associated risk factors.


                                                                        ABSTRACT

Objectives: This report is based on a study conducted in February 2010 that assessed the knowledge and attitudes toward cervical cancer and human papillomavirus (HPV) in Grenada which has a high incidence of cervical cancer.
