Several recent studies have reported different associations between HLA specificities and human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated disease of the cervix. We report the distribution of DQA1 and DQB1 genes and HPV infection in a population-based case-control study including 92 patients with histologically verified cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade II-III (CIN II-III) (thus including moderate and severe dysplasia and carcinoma in situ) and 225 control subjects. We found an overrepresentation… CONTINUE READING
