Oral squamous cell carcinomas (OSCCs) develop commonly in cats. While the cause of the feline neoplasms is unknown, a quarter of human OSCCs are caused by papillomavirus (PV) infection. As PV DNA has been previously detected in a feline OSCC, it was hypothesised that PV infection could be a significant cause of feline OSCCs. Human OSCCs that are caused by… CONTINUE READING
