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

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.329
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 (EBV) 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 PCR.

Knowledge and Attitudes toward HPV and the HPV Vaccines in The Bahamas

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.318
Synopsis: 
A survey of 399 persons was done in Nassau, Bahamas, to determine knowledge and attitudes toward the human papillomavirus and its vaccine. Although knowledge of both was limited, the majority would vaccinate their children.
ABSTRACT
 
Objective: High-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV) are a necessary, albeit not sufficient, cause for cervical cancer development. In The Bahamas, cervical cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer despite screening and educational efforts. As a vaccine programme is being considered, awareness of HPV-related conditions and its vaccine needs to be measured.
