Of the 120 known human papillomaviruses (HPV), 51 HPV types infect the genital mucosa. Very little is known about the prevalence and viral load of the majority of these low‐risk (Lr‐) HPV types in screening populations. We determined the prevalence of 51 HPV types and three subtypes in 999 consecutive BD‐SurePath™ liquid‐based cervical cytology samples collected during routine gynecological health checks from Belgian women. This series of screening samples was enriched with ASC‐US (n = 100… 
Viral Load of High-Risk Human Papillomaviruses as Reliable Clinical Predictor for the Presence of Cervical Lesions
TLDR
Quantitative type-specific HPV DNA assays show high flexibility in defining thresholds that allow optimizing clinical accuracy for cervical cancer precursors and could reduce the amount of false positive results detected by the BSGP5+/6+-PCR/MPG and qPCR tests.
Human Papillomavirus Type-Specific Prevalence in the Cervical Cancer Screening Population of Czech Women
TLDR
Country-specific HPV type-specific prevalences provide baseline information which will enable to measure the impact of HPV vaccination in the future, and HPV prevalence in this population in the Czech Republic is higher than in other countries of Eastern Europe.
Multiple Human Papillomavirus Infections with High Viral Loads Are Associated with Cervical Lesions but Do Not Differentiate Grades of Cervical Abnormalities
TLDR
Patients with multiple high viral loads showed a 4- to 6-fold-higher risk of having cervical precancerous cytological lesions than did patients with single high viral Load, according to a recently defined high viral load cutoff.
The Distribution of High-Risk Human Papillomaviruses Is Different in Young and Old Patients with Cervical Cancer
TLDR
The data indicate that most CCs in young women depend on the presence of high-oncogenic HPVs, while almost half ofCCs in older patients had low- oncogenicHPVs, suggesting they could depend onThe presence of other factors.
Current studies on human papillomavirus in Saudi Arabia.
TLDR
Light is shed on the current HPV research being conducted and the prevalence of HPV in Saudi Arabia to shed light on the oncological potential of transforming cells.
Concordance of HPV load and HPV mRNA for 16 carcinogenic/possibly carcinogenic HPV types in paired smear/tissue cervical cancer specimens
TLDR
Viral loads for all currently defined 51 mucosal HPV types in 74 cervical smears from patients with CxCa were analyzed and compared with HPV DNA and mRNA status in these patients’ corresponding CXCa tissues to demonstrate that the presence of high HPV loads in Cx Ca smears predicts biologically active HR-/pHR-HPV types in tumor tissues.
Molecular Epidemiology of Human Papillomavirus Infections in Cervical Samples From Cuban Women Older Than 30 Years
TLDR
The first report of the molecular epidemiology of HPV in Cuban women, based on results from a DNA sequence and quantitative PCR, supports the inclusion of HPV vaccine in Cuba.
High frequency of genital human papillomavirus infections and related cervical dysplasia in adolescent girls in Belgium
  • M. Merckx, I. Benoy, D. Vanden Broeck
  • Biology, Medicine
    European journal of cancer prevention : the official journal of the European Cancer Prevention Organisation
  • 2014
TLDR
The findings indicate that an aberrant HPV genotype profile can be found in adolescent girls; moreover, this group shows a high rate of cervical abnormalities.
Biological evidence for a causal role of HPV16 in a small fraction of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma
TLDR
HPV type 16 has a causative role in a small subgroup of L-SCC (<5% in this German hospital series) and can be a causal factor in virtually all cervical and a subset of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma.
Pathogenic role of the eight probably/possibly carcinogenic HPV types 26, 53, 66, 67, 68, 70, 73 and 82 in cervical cancer
TLDR
Molecular evidence of carcinogenicity for types currently classified as probably/possibly carcinogenic HR‐HPV types is provided, although this evidence is not sufficient for inclusion of these HPV types into population‐wide primary and secondary prevention programmes.

Prevaccination Distribution of Human Papillomavirus Types in Women Attending at Cervical Cancer Screening in Belgium
TLDR
Compared to other West European studies, the prevalence of HPV infection was considerably higher in cytologically negative women but similar in women with cervical lesions, and these differences could be due to the use of a PCR with high analytic sensitivity.
Thin-layer liquid-based cervical cytology and PCR for detecting and typing human papillomavirus DNA in Flemish women
TLDR
There is a significant increase in predominance of high-risk HPV types, with increasing abnormal cytology, and in Flanders, HSIL was most often associated with HPV types 16, 33, 35, 31, 18 and 51.
Human papillomavirus infection in the female population of Antwerp, Belgium: prevalence in healthy women, women with premalignant lesions and cervical cancer.
TLDR
It is suggested that a prophylactic vaccine based on a cocktail of a limited number of high-risk HPV types should be considered in order to protect most women from developing cervical cancer.
Human papillomavirus technologies
TLDR
To validate the different current and future test systems and to compare inter-laboratory performance the authors urgently need reference samples, validated reagents, and standardized protocols.
Homogeneous Amplification of Genital Human Alpha Papillomaviruses by PCR Using Novel Broad-Spectrum GP5+ and GP6+ Primers
TLDR
BSGP5-/6- multiplexed with β-globin PCR provides an improvement in type-specific amplification sensitivity and homogeneity compared to GP5+/6+ and offers simultaneous internal control of DNA quality.
Abundance of Multiple High-Risk Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Infections Found in Cervical Cells Analyzed by Use of an Ultrasensitive HPV Genotyping Assay
TLDR
The TS-PCR-MPG assay significantly increased the rate of detection of HPV DNA and the number of infections with multiple HPV types detected and demonstrated that the prevalence of low-copy-number HPV infections in the anogenital tract may be strongly underestimated by conventional HPV amplification methods, especially in cases of multiple infections.
Papillomavirus Subtypes Are Natural and Old Taxa: Phylogeny of Human Papillomavirus Types 44 and 55 and 68a and -b
TLDR
It is concluded that subtypes of HPV types are natural and old taxa, equivalent to types, which either diverged more recently than types or evolved more slowly.
Bead-Based Multiplex Genotyping of Human Papillomaviruses
TLDR
Multiplex human papillomavirus genotyping (MPG), a quantitative and sensitive high-throughput procedure for the identification of multiple high- and low-risk genital HPV genotypes in a single reaction appears to be highly suitable for large-scale epidemiological studies and vaccination trials as well as for routine diagnostic purposes.
