The role of human papillomaviruses (HPVs) in the development of genital neoplasias has been well documented. The genomes of two HPV types, HPV16 and HPV18, have been found to be associated with about 70% of invasive carcinomas of the uterine cervix. As, under non-stringent hybridization conditions, HPV DNA sequences have been detected in about 90% of(More)
Sixteen patients with bowenoid papulosis (eleven male patients with bowenoid papulosis of the penis and five female patients with bowenoid papulosis of the vulva) were studied clinically, histologically, and virologically and followed up from 12 months to 5 years. In eleven of sixteen cases of bowenoid papulosis, molecular hybridization disclosed the(More)
The genomes of two novel human papillomavirus (HPV) types, HPV68 and HPV70, were cloned from a low-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and a vulvar papilloma, respectively, and partially sequenced. Both types are related to HPV39, a potentially oncogenic virus. HPV68 and HPV70 were also detected in genital intraepithelial neoplasia from three patients(More)
Lesions from 10 patients suffering from focal epithelial hyperplasia (FEH) of the oral mucosa, including those of 4 Greenlandic Eskimos, were investigated for the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA sequences by blot hybridization experiments. Two distinct HPVs were detected in the DNA extracted from these lesions, and their genomes were molecularly(More)
The genomes of two new genital human papillomavirus (HPV) types, tentatively named HPVs 39 and 42, have been cloned from biopsy specimens of penile Bowenoid papules and vulvar papillomas, respectively. Blot hybridization experiments, performed under stringent conditions (Tm -10 degrees), have revealed no cross-hybridization between the DNAs of HPVs 39 and(More)
This study includes 28 intraepithelial squamous lesions of the cervix associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA sequences detected by the Southern blot technique. Objective analyses of the histologic features by morphometric parameters and mitotic index have demonstrated that lesions of HPV types 6 and 11 can be distinguished from types 16, 18, and 33(More)
All together, 30 genital human papillomavirus (HPV) types have been characterized so far. To evaluate the importance of HPV diversity in associated cervical diseases, we analyzed 188 biopsy specimens obtained from patients with a recent diagnosis of cervical HPV infection or intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). Of these 188 specimens, 116 were classified as(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA sequences coexisting with HPV16 and HPV45 were cloned from an invasive cervical carcinoma. The cloned HPV was shown to be a novel type, named HPV66, and is related to HPV56 (an HPV detected in cervical cancer). After screening 160 anogenital biopsies, four specimens exhibited histological features of intraepithelial neoplasia(More)
Clinically malignant Buschke-Löwenstein tumours and benign condylomata acuminata are caused by human papillomaviruses (HPVs), predominantly HPV-6 and -11. In some cases, the HPV-6 genomes found in Buschke-Löwenstein tumours and in verrucous carcinomas differ from HPV-6b isolated from a benign genital wart, by rearrangements of the upstream regulatory region(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA sequences were detected by Southern blot hybridization and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in 10 out of 19 patients (52.7%) with adenocarcinoma [15] and adenosquamous [4] carcinoma of the uterine cervix. HPV 18 DNA was detected in 8 of these 19 patients (42.1%), HPV 16 DNA in 1 patient (5.3%) and HPV type X (unknown) in(More)
