The high level of progesterone during pregnancy may enhance the transcription and replication of genital human papillomaviruses (HPV) through the glucocorticoid/progesterone response element found in the long control region of the viral genome. In this study, cytologically and colposcopically healthy pregnant women were subjected to a follow-up examination.(More)
Cervical specimens collected from 163 cytologically healthy women were screened for the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA and anti-HPV secretory IgA antibodies. HPV DNA was detected by a general primer mediated polymerase chain reaction (PCR), which amplifies a conserved region from the L1 ORF of genital HPVs. The PCR products were typed by(More)
