Human papillomavirus (HPV) type 16 is the most prevalent high-risk viral genotype associated with cervical cancer.

HPV16 DNA was extracted from cervicolavage samples from women with normal pap smears. The LCR regions were amplified in triplicate, cloned, sequenced, and analyzed from a total of 11 recovered HPV16 positive samples [Ng'andwe et al. (2007): BMC Infect Dis 7:77… CONTINUE READING
