BACKGROUND Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is the most prevalent malignancy among males in India. While tobacco and alcohol are main aetiological factors, human papilloma virus (HPV) presence has surprisingly increased in head and neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC) in the past two decade but its frequency in OSCCS is still uncertain. We aim to explore the frequency of HPV and its major genotypes in North Indian patients and their association with clinicopathological and histopathological… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma Positive for HPV Genotypes 16 and 18 : A Retrospective Clinicopathologic Study in Yogyakarta , Indonesia
TLDR
The tongue was the most common anatomical site for HPV-positive OSCC, and the prevalence of well-differentiated HPV positive OSCC was 57.1%.
p16 and p53 in HPV‐positive versus HPV‐negative oral squamous cell carcinoma: do pathways differ?
TLDR
Presence of mutant-type p53 and exposure to tobacco-related risk factors in both HPV-positive and negative cases suggest existence of p53-related carcinogenesis in HPV- positive cases in Indian population.
Human papilloma virus (HPV) infection leads to the development of head and neck lesions but offers better prognosis in malignant Indian patients
TLDR
The data indicate that frequent HPV infection, along with tobacco habit, is a pre-requisite factor for the development of HNSCC of Indian patients but offers a better survival even during tobacco usage, implicating its diagnostic and prognostic importance.
Do smoking and human papilloma virus have a synergistic role in the development of head and neck cancer? A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
It is found that smoking is less common in HPV positive group than in HPV negative group, and so probably smoking does not play a major role in the pathogenesis of HPV-positive HNSCC as in the Pathogenesis ofHPV-negative HNS CC.
Role of Human Papilloma Virus in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Patients with Smoking and Non-Smoking Habits Based on Immunoexpression of p16: An Immunohistochemical Study
TLDR
It can be concluded that tobacco is a major risk factor for oral carcinogenesis and human papilloma virus can act as an independent risk factor or synergistic factor with tobacco in the development of oral cancer.
Frequency of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) 16 and 18 Detection in Paraffin- Embedded Laryngeal Carcinoma Tissue
TLDR
Evaluated frequency of HPV 16 and HPV 18 genotypes in patients with laryngeal carcinoma found 28% of HNSCC samples proved positive for HPV16 and HPV18 genotypes, two high-risk HPV types, it is important to further assess whether such viral infection, could be a risk factor in H NSCC progression.
Human papilloma virus prevalence and its correlation with clinical presentation and histological grading in oral squamous cell carcinoma.
TLDR
There was no association between habits and histological grading with Human Papillomavirus 16 in patient with oral squamous cell carcinoma, but there was association between HPV16 and clinical presentation of OSCC because of p-value (.015) which was significant.
Human Papillomavirus-Associated Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma Among Adults Living in South-Central Asia: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Human papillomavirus 16, HPV 18 and HPV 16/18 were found to be the most common types implicated in HPV infection associated with OSCC, and buccal mucosa was the mostCommon site of oral cancer.

Prevalence of human papillomavirus infection in oral squamous cell carcinoma: a case-control study in Wuhan, China.
TLDR
High-risk HPV types HPV16 and HPV18 are prevalent in OSCC patients and may participate in the development of OSCC with traditional risk factors, tobacco and alcohol, possibly exerting synergistic effects.
Lack of association between high-risk human papillomaviruses and oral squamous cell carcinoma in young Japanese patients.
TLDR
It is indicated that HPV is less likely to cause OSCC in young Japanese patients, and the p16(INK4a) expression level is not an appropriate surrogate marker for HPV infection in OSCC.
Identification of human papillomaviruses in tumors of the oral cavity in an Indian community
TLDR
It is reported that the oral cavity harbors a variety of different HPVs, in conjunction with the carcinogens present in tobacco, that could contribute to carcinogenesis.
Low prevalence of Human Papillomavirus in oral cavity carcinomas
TLDR
The results show that in contrast to oropharyngeal cancers, oral cancers and other HNSCCs infrequently harbor HPV, which was the most prevalent type, but other types detected included 6, 18, 33, 35, 45, and 52/58.
Evidence for a causal association between human papillomavirus and a subset of head and neck cancers.
TLDR
It is suggested that HPV-positive oropharyngeal cancers comprise a distinct molecular, clinical, and pathologic disease entity that is likely causally associated with HPV infection and that has a markedly improved prognosis.
HPV in oral squamous cell carcinoma vs head and neck squamous cell carcinoma biopsies: a meta-analysis (1988-2007).
TLDR
Findings support the assumption that a correct distinction of HNSCC by site, together with the use of more sensitive HPV DNA detection methods, should be considered as essential prerogatives in designing future investigations into viral prevalence in head and neck tumors.
Prevalence of Human Papillomavirus Type 16 DNA in Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Palatine Tonsil, and Not the Oral Cavity, in Young Patients: A Distinct Clinicopathologic and Molecular Disease Entity
TLDR
It is concluded that in young patients high-risk HPV, particularly HPV16, is strongly associated with tonsillar squamous cell carcinoma and some cases of laryngeal, but not oral, tumors.
Low prevalence of human papillomavirus in squamous-cell carcinoma limited to oral cavity proper
TLDR
Evaluated the presence of high-risk type human papillomavirus in a large, well defined sample of squamous-cell carcinoma limited to the oral cavity by means of quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction, a method which ensures high sensitivity and offers the opportunity to exclude false-positive results.
Human Papilloma Virus Attributable Head and Neck Cancer in the Sudan Assessed by p16 INK4A Immunostaining
TLDR
The fact that the prevalence of HPV is high among Sudanese patients with head and neck cancers (HNC) has obvious implications for vaccine therapy.
