Prognostic significance of human papillomavirus detected with polymerase chain reaction in cervical cancer

Prognostic significance of human papillomavirus detected with polymerase chain reaction in cervical cancer

Zhonghua Yi Xue Za Zhi 51(2): 97

In order to investigate the prognostic factors of cervical cancer and its association with human papillomavirus (HPV), we analyzed 50 specimens of cervical cancer with a DNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR) mainly to detect HPV types 16 (HPV 16) and 18 (HPV 18). The result showed that at least 74% (37/50) of the specimens had HPV DNA. Among them, 54% (20/37) of the cases were HPV 16 and 32% (12/37) were HPV 18. These HPV DNA positive patients had poorer differentiation in histology than the HPV DNA negative patients. We draw no conclusion about the prognostic significance of HPV DNA in cervical cancer. Perhaps more cases should be analyzed.
