Nowadays human papillomavirus (HPV) is a significant source of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Epidemiological studies suggest that 75% of all sexually active people will become infected at some point during their lifetimes... 
The Human Papillomavirus Vaccination Debate
TLDR
The attempt to create an HPV vaccination mandate largely failed, and the reasons for the failure were complex and arose in the context of political opposition, public skepticism about vaccines, unresolved scientific questions, and issues of cost. Expand
The Oncogenic Pathways of Papillomaviruses.
TLDR
The main focus in this review is the evaluation of the interactions between high-risk papillomavirus oncoproteins and programmed cell-death pathways and the role of these interactions in the malignant cell transformation process. Expand
Učestalost infekcije HPV-om visokog rizika u premalignim lezijama vrata maternice
HPV je relativno mali DNA virus bez ovojnice, koji taksonomski pripada obitelji Papillomaviridae (rod Papillomavirus). S obzirom na onkogeni potencija
Cervical cancer in the work of the unconventional Samuel Pozzi (1846-1918), pioneer of modern gynaecology.
TLDR
His book "Treatise of clinical and surgical gynaecology" published in 1890 became the gold standard in medical practice while his approach in the treatment of cervical cancer, including cases of pregnant women, remained in vogue for almost fifty years. Expand
Viral Causes of Lymphoma: The History of Epstein-Barr Virus and Human T-Lymphotropic Virus 1
  • Daniel Esau
  • Medicine
  • Virology : research and treatment
  • 2017
TLDR
The history of the discovery of these 2 key oncoviruses is presented here, and their impact on further medical research, using the specific example of HIV research, is briefly discussed. Expand
Le condylome acuminé isolé de la cavité buccale : à propos d’un cas clinique
TLDR
Le condylome acumine est rarement de localisation buccale, un traitement radical base sur l’exerese chirurgicale avec excision ou electrocoagulation s’impose vu le caractere hautement contagieux des lesions. Expand
Linking Human Papillomavirus to Human Cancer and Understanding Its Carcinogenic Mechanisms
TLDR
Potentially, HPV lesions can be treated, if the authors find ways to inactivate the expression or function of the viral E6 and E7 oncogenes in cells on their way to cancer or, even earlier, by selectively killing keratinocytes that harbor primary viral infections before they become dysplastic or experience HPV DNA integration.

Papova Virus Group
TLDR
Members of the group have the following properties: 45 m� diameter, deoxyribonucleic acid core, 42 capsomeres, absence of essential lipids, thermal resistance, slow growth cycle within the cell nucleus, and tumorigenicity. Expand
Epidemiology of genital human papillomavirus infection.
TLDR
Current evidence suggests a long latency between acquisition of genital papillomavirus infection and the development of cervical malignancy, with cervical cancer generally not developing until the 5th decade and beyond. Expand
Anal warts and anal coitus.
  • J. Oriel
  • Medicine
  • The British journal of venereal diseases
  • 1971
TLDR
The natural history and virology of genital warts have been studied in detail recently, but little is known about the natural history of anal warts, although this is a relatively common disease of great antiquity. Expand
Natural history of genital warts.
  • J. Oriel
  • Medicine
  • The British journal of venereal diseases
  • 1971
TLDR
The early history of the disease has recently been reviewed by Bafverstedt (1967), who pointed out that some of the early synonyms for the lesions, particularly the words 'fig' and 'condyloma', have survived into modern times. Expand
Condylomatous lesions of the cervix and vagina. I. Cytologic patterns.
TLDR
It is indicated that a large number of lesions previously classed as mild dysplasias actually represent various stages of condylomatous lesions, which become of much greater significance as the early stages of evolution of carcinomata of the cervix. Expand
A new type of papillomavirus DNA, its presence in genital cancer biopsies and in cell lines derived from cervical cancer.
TLDR
DNA of a new papillomavirus type was cloned from a cervical carcinoma biopsy and the data reveal that the DNA might be integrated into the host cell genome, which is tentatively proposed to be HPV 18. Expand
“Crystalline” Virus-Like Particles from Skin Papillomas Characterized by Intranuclear Inclusion Bodies.∗
TLDR
Virus-like particles that tend to be arranged in a crystalline-like pattern have been observed by electron microscopy in as study of suspensions of 5 skin papillomas in a review of surgical pathological material. Expand
Intranuclear virus particles in human genital wart tissue: observations on the ultrastructure of the epidermal layer.
TLDR
Human genital warts were examined, and virus particles that had the morphology typical of papilloma virus were located in one specimen and strands of material possessing regular subunits similar to those described by other authors (23) and which they suggest may be unassembled viral subunits. Expand
Cytology of gynecologic condyloma acuminatum.
TLDR
The morphology of certain cell types often encountered in vaginal and cervical smears of condyloma patients are described and it is assumed that this virus may affect the cervical and vaginal epithelium without any typical papillary condylomatous lesions resulting. Expand
Condylomata acuminata and human genital cancer.
TLDR
A search for Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 Markers in Cervical Carcinoma and its Association with Malignancy in Humans is conducted. Expand
