The DNA genome of a novel HPV genotype, HPV-125, isolated from a hand wart of an immuno-competent 19-year old male was fully cloned, sequenced and characterized. The full genome of HPV-125 is 7,809-bp in length with a GC content of 46.4%. By comparing the nucleotide sequence of the complete L1 gene, HPV-125 is phylogenetically placed within cutaneotrophic(More)

BACKGROUND Genital warts (GWs) are the most frequent benign tumors in the anogenital region of both males and females. Human papillomaviruses (HPV) are etiologically associated with the development of virtually all GWs. HPV-6 and HPV-11 are the most commonly detected HPV genotypes, but at least 20 other alpha-HPV genotypes have occasionally been found in GW(More)
Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) were detected in 69 (43.7%) of 158 and in 7 (4.5%) of 155 anogenital hairs obtained from 53 patients with genital warts (GWs) and from 53 age-matched healthy control subjects, respectively. At least 1 hair sample was positive for 69.8% of patients and for 13.2% of control subjects. For patients, HPV was detected in 64.2%,(More)
Sir, Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) and Cockayne syndrome (CS) are rare genodermatoses characterized by hypersensitivity to ultraviolet light. XP is a hereditary autosomal recessive condition, manifested clinically by abnormal photosensitivity of the skin and eyes, pigment anomalies, increased risk of cutaneous neoplasms and, frequently, by progressive neural(More)
