Cervical cancer pathogenesis is a multi-factorial process where cervical epithelium is exposed to several important carcinogenic influences. On epidemiological bases, cervical cancer has the characteristics of a venereal disease and among many genital infective agents; human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) might have a role in the etiology of this neoplasm. This study aimed to investigate rate of HCMV infections in cervical aden carcinoma using DNA -in situ hybridization (DISH) and to evaluate their… 

Figures and Tables from this paper



A PCR study on the coexistence of herpes simplex virus, cytomegalovirus and human papillomavirus DNAs in cervical neoplasia

The role of HSV and HCMV as cofactors of HPV 16 and HPV 18 in cervical neoplasia is supported and coinfection associating high-risk HPVs (HPV 16 and/or HPV 18) and herpes viruses (HCMV and/ or HSV) were observed in cervicalNeoplasia.

High prevalence of human cytomegalovirus in prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia and prostatic carcinoma.

Data demonstrate for the first time the specific localization of HCMV nucleic acids and proteins in a high percent of PIN and prostate carcinoma lesions, and raise the possibility that H CMV might contribute to the natural history of prostatic cancer.

Epstein-Barr virus in normal , premalignant , and malignant lesions of the uterine cervix

The study shows that the virus is present in some cases of cervical carcinoma and to a lesser degree in some premalignant lesions of the cervix, but the exact association between it and cervical oncogenesis, be it causative or incidental, remains to be determined.

Genotyping of Human Papilloma Virus Infections and Phenotyping of Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes in Iraqi Patients with Uterine Cervical Neoplasia

Using ISH proved more powerful and sensitive tool in revealing precised effects of HPV in cervical neoplasia compared to histopathological examination, which could reflect an important and specific role of these cellular responses against HPV viruses during initiation and progression of HPV-associated cervical cancers.

Cytomegalovirus infection and cervical cancer: from past doubts to present questions.

A high frequency of positive Cytomegalovirus cases in all types of cervical samples, with increased incidence in both HPV-infected women and CIS/ICC cases is described.

Molecular detection of human papillomavirus in 594 uterine cervix samples from Moroccan women (147 biopsies and 447 swabs).

Roles of cytomegalovirus and Chlamydia trachomatis in the induction of cervical neoplasia in the mouse.

Testing for oncogenicity in a mouse model of induction of cervical neoplasia by repeated exposure to inactivated herpes simplex viruses indicates that strain AD-169 of cytomegalovirus is oncogenic for the mouse cervix and suggests that the LGV-2 serovar of C. trachomatis is not.

Herpes simplex virus-2 as a human papillomavirus cofactor in the etiology of invasive cervical cancer.

HSV-2 infection may act in conjunction with HPV infection to increase the risk of invasive cervical carcinoma and be associated with markers of sexual behavior, but not with cervical HPV DNA positivity.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) cervical infections in women with normal and abnormal cytology.

Co-infection with EBV and HPV 16 may be of cervical significance in etiopathogenesis of uterine cervical cancer and all patients were found to carry serum IgG-anti-VCA and IgG -anti-EBNA antibodies.

Infection and cervical neoplasia: facts and fiction.

The increased risk of cervical neoplasia in patients infected with HIV has been recognised for over a decade and HIV may interact with HPV either by alternating HPV gene transcription or by immunosuppression.
