Compelling evidence supports a role of certain types of human papillomaviruses as the cause of cervical cancer. In addition to human papillomaviruses, other agents, such as hormones, have been implicated as cofactors in this type of neoplasia. In this study we provide evidence for oncogenic transformation of primary baby rat kidney cells by human papillomavirus type 16 deoxyribonucleic acid plus ras oncogene in the presence of progesterone but not estrogen. Integrated and intact human… CONTINUE READING
