INTRODUCTION Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted pathogen and its potential role in the genesis of several diseases such as cervical, head and neck, anal and penile cancers, is now largely recognized. Aim of this review article was to evaluate and summarize the state of the art of HPV-related urogenital cancers, focusing on the potentially innovative methods for the diagnosis of infection that should be used to improve viral causative detection and prevent its…

Results indicate that HNC are infrequently associated with HPV infection in the Central African Republic, and the overall HPV prevalence in HNC biopsies was 0.74%.

Epstein-Barr Virus and Human Adenovirus Viremia in Renal Tumors Is Associated with Histological Features of Malignancy

EBV and ADV infections are common in renal cancer patients and increase the risk of high-grade RCC presence and there is no significant impact on short term survival, while further studies are needed to assess the relevance of these findings in a long run.

Clinical and Molecular Profile of Patients With Condyloma Acuminatum Treated in the Brazilian Public Healthcare System

The present findings suggest that the natural history of infection by HPV is not yet completely known and that greater care is needed to ensure clinical safety in the follow-up of these patients due to the oncogenic potential.

Knowledge and attitude of Iranian university students toward genital warts

The knowledge of the majority of Babol University of Medical Sciences students about genital warts was in a good range, and their knowledge about HPV routes of transmission was of moderate level, and the majority had an appropriate attitude to interact with people infected with HPV.

Viral infections and implications for male reproductive health

The pathophysiological understanding in the male genital tract is essential to assess its clinical impact on male reproductive health and guide future research.

Pseudoepitheliomatous keratotic and micaceous balanitis: low-risk human papilloma virus detection in two further cases

Two cases of histologically documented pseudoepitheliomatous keratotic and micaceous balanitis in middle-aged male patients showed positivity for low-risk serotype human papillomavirus DNA, which should be included in pseudoepidemic assessment to address prognosis, and management.

The evaluation of Human papilloma virus and human herpes viruses (EBV, CMV, VZV HSV‐1 and HSV‐2) in semen samples

Maybe sperm washing can be useful to eliminate HPV infection from semen samples, but further investigation is required because of the small number of samples.

The aim of this review is to comprehensively analyze the current literature according to sex-related differences in the microbiome composition in BC.



Human papillomavirus detection in Moroccan patients with bladder cancer.

The data indicate for the first time that bladder tumors from Moroccan patients harbor HR-HPV genotypes, especially HPV16, and thereby suggest that this virus may play a causative role in bladder cancer.

Evaluation of human papillomavirus infections in prostatic disease: a cross-sectional study in Iran.

Data do not support a significant role of HPV infection in prostatic disease in Iranian patients, but demographic data indicated a probable association between presence of HPV DNA and risk of inflammation in prostate tissue which might lead to prostate carcinoma.

Lack of evidence for an association between seminoma and human papillomavirus infection using GP5+/GP6+ consensus primers

Findings do not support an association between HPV and human seminoma and warrant further studies to assess definitively the role of these viruses in human testicular tumorigenesis.

Systematic review of human papillomavirus prevalence in invasive penile cancer

HPV DNA was detected in half of SCC, with HPV16 being the most common type, and prophylactic vaccines targeting carcinogenic types HPV16 and 18 could potentially reduce approximately one-third of incident SCC.

The role of human papilloma virus in urological malignancies.

This short review provides an update regarding recent literature on HPV in urological malignancies, thereby, also discussing possible limitations on HPV detection in Urological cancer.

Association between human papillomavirus in men and their sexual partners and uterine cervical intraepithelial neoplasia
