To determine the correlation between deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) loads of human papillomavirus (HPV) and recurrence of condylomata acuminata (CA), 31 cases of primary CA and 32 cases of recurrent CA were assayed for the HPV6/11 and HPV16/18 DNA loads by real-time fluorogenic quantitative PCR. The results showed 62 of the 63 cases were HPV6/11 DNA positive (98.4%). The ranges of HPV6/11 DNA contained in primary and recurrent CA were 1.4 x 10(3)-6.7 x 10(7) and 1.2 x 10(4)-3.6 x 10(8) copies/mL… CONTINUE READING
