This cross-sectional study evaluated the performance of real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to detect GBS colonization in the anogenital tract of pregnant(More)
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) genotype distribution varies according to the method of assessment and population groups. This study analyzed type-specific HPV infections among women ranging from 14–95 years old, displaying normal and abnormal cytology, from São Paulo and Barretos cities, Brazil.

High-risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) is an essential cause of cervical carcinoma and is also strongly related to anal cancer development. The hrHPV E6 oncoprotein plays a major role in carcinogenesis. We aimed to evaluate the frequency of hrHPV DNA and E6 oncoprotein in the anuses of women with cervical carcinoma. We analyzed 117 women with cervical(More)
