Various methods have been proposed for HPV detection and typing. Prevalence and distribution among types have varied depending upon the methods used and the populations studied. We have applied the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) followed by a Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (RFLP) analysis using the MY09/MY11 primers for detection of HPV in cervicovaginal lavages obtained from 323 patients who were referred to our Clinical Department either for genital complaints or an abnormal PAP… CONTINUE READING
