Human papillomaviruses were detected by an in vitro enzymatic DNA amplification method in cells obtained from vulvar swabs of 9 of 61 (14.8 %) young women without prior experience of sexual intercourse and in 7 of 57 (12.3 %) young women with prior experience. The prevalence of human papillomavirus DNA in these two groups of women was not significantly different (x2=0.16, p>0.5; 95 % confidence interval −0.165 to 0.215). These results suggest that genital human papillomavirus is not sexually… 
Association between human papillomavirus in men and their sexual partners and uterine cervical intraepithelial neoplasia
In the present study, HPV in men was not found to be a risk factor in the development of cervical uterine lesions and the viruses that were found were low risk.
Possible non‐sexual modes of transmission of human papilloma virus
There is strong evidence to suggest vertical and horizontal modes of transmission of human papilloma virus (HPV), an established etiologic agent of cervical cancer, and a thorough review of the literature was performed.

Human Papillomavirus and External Genital Lesions
This chapter discusses the management of subclinical infection and clinical disease, including novel ­therapeutic options for HPV-related external genital lesions, as well as preventive measures against the disease.
Genital warts in children: what do they mean?
The finding of asymptomatic HPV DNA in children, and correlation with live virus, infectivity, or disease is unclear, and long term follow up for children with anogenital warts is recommended, although there are no longitudinal studies available to clarify whether they are at risk of developing carcinoma in young adulthood.
Penises not required: a systematic review of the potential for human papillomavirus horizontal transmission that is non-sexual or does not include penile penetration.
A systematic review of the literature found no systematic review was found that focussed on HPV horizontal transmission that is not penocentric, and further studies on non-sexual and non-penetrative sexual transmission are needed to understand the complexity of HPV transmission.
Difficulties in estimating the male-to-female sexual transmissibility of human papillomavirus infection.
This study sought to design and conduct a study among couples to provide the first empirical estimate of male-to-female sexual transmissibility of HPV, and faced several difficulties in achieving this goal.
Anogenital and Respiratory Tract Human Papillomavirus Infections Among Children: Age, Gender, and Potential Transmission Through Sexual Abuse
The data from this epidemiologic study of HPV suggest that many anogenital and laryngeal HPV infections among preadolescent children are a result of nonsexual horizontal transmission, acquired either perinatally or postnatally.
Biomolecular Study of the Correlation Between Papillomatosis of the Vulvar Vestibule in Adolescents and Human Papillomavirus
The results confirmed a scarce correlation between vestibular papillae and HPV and consider papillomatosis of the vulvar vestibule, in most cases, to be equivalent to physiological papillmatosis and should not be treated.


Prevalence of genital human papillomavirus infections in patients at a sexually transmitted diseases clinic
The results indicated that even the more malignant types of human papillomaviruses were not uncommon among the control group, and that the prevalence of human Papillomvirus infection was significantly higher in STD clinic patients than in thecontrol group.
Determinants of genital human papillomavirus infection in young women.
It is demonstrated that the key risk factors for cervical carcinoma are strongly associated with genital HPV infection, which suggests that HPV has an etiologic role in cervical neoplasia and reaffirms the sexual route of HPV transmission.
High prevalence rate of human papillomavirus infection and association with abnormal papanicolaou smears in sexually active adolescents.
Human papillomaviruses emerged as a common pathogen in female adolescents, and infected patients are at increased risk for cervical epithelial abnormalities.
Human papillomavirus infection and cervical cancer in Latin America.
Although the number of sexual partners, age at first intercourse, number of live births, and Pap-smear history were also significant risk factors, the strong associations between infection with HPV 16 or 18 or both and cervical cancer persisted after the authors adjusted for these variables, consistent with the hypothesis that genital infection withHPV 16 or18 may have a role in the pathogenesis of cervical cancer.
Human papillomavirus types in anogenital warts of children
Tissue from anogenital warts of 25 children, 10 of whom were suspected of being victims of sexual abuse, was investigated by dot blot and Southern blot techniques for human papillomavirus (HPV)
Identification of human papillomavirus DNA sequences in peripheral blood mononuclear cells.
The presence of HPV DNA in PBMCs may impair the immunologic functions of the lymphocytes and play a role in the epidemiology of HPV infections and the pathogenesis of HPV-induced diseases.
Detection of human papillomaviruses in cervicovaginal cells using polymerase chain reaction.
The data suggested that retest probably should be considered for patients clinically suspected of having HPV infection whose initial test results are negative for HPV DNA, and single HPV DNA-positive results should be accepted with caution.
Evidence of prevalent genital-type human papillomavirus infections in adults and children.
Recombinant proteins encoded by the E2, E7, L1, and L2 open reading frames (ORF) of human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6b, 16, and 18 were used in Western blot assays to detect serum IgG antibodies in
