The presence of human papillomaviruses (HPV) has been shown to be associated with the development and progression of invasive cancers of the genital tract, skin, and head and neck. In this study we analyzed 37 human nonmelanoma skin cancers (21 squamous cell carcinomas and 16 basal cell carcinomas) for the presence of HPV sequences. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was employed using primers designed to amplify DNA encoding the E6-E7 region of HPV types 6b/11, 16, and 18. HPV type 6b/11 and… CONTINUE READING
