Geographic variation in human papillomavirus–related oropharyngeal cancer: Data from 4 multinational randomized trials

There are variations in the proportions of head and neck cancers caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) between countries and regions. It is unclear if these are true variations or due to different

Human Papillomavirus in Head and Neck Cancer

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is currently considered to be a major etiologic factor, in addition to tobacco and alcohol, for oropharyngeal cancer (OPC) development. HPV positive OPCs are

Molecular and Phylogenetic Analysis of Human Papillomavirus Using L1 Gene in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma Patients in Baghdad, Iraq

Molecular and Phylogenetic Analysis of Human Papillomavirus Using L1 Gene in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma Patients in Baghdad, Iraq and the results show clear trends in prognosis for oral squamous cell carcinoma patients in Iraq.

Patients with HPV+ HNSCC seem to have significantly improved response to chemotherapy and radiotherapy as compared with HPV-negative tumours, suggesting that these low-risk HPV types are not entirely benign in the head and neck region.

Ancillary Studies in Determining Human Papillomavirus Status of Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Oropharynx: A Review

The utility of ancillary studies in the establishment of HPV status of oropharyngeal SCC is highlighted, including p16 immunohistochemistry, high-risk HPV in situ hybridization, polymerase chain reaction, and newer HPV detection modalities.

Relation between HPV Infection and the Pathogenesis of the Extra Anogenital Squamous Cell Carcinomas in HIV Positive and Negative Patients

There is a high prevalence of HPV in HIV positive men; this is especially important in the anal region but it is beginning to be important in warts lesions located in the oral cavity, oropharynx, hipopharynX, larynx and oesophageus.

The Role of Human Papillomavirus in Head and Neck Cancers

Investigations suggest that HPV infection in these anatomic sites is an independent risk factor for carcinogenesis, and the most frequently detected high-risk HPVs in HNSCC are the 16 and 18 genotypes.

Human Papilloma Virus in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma - The Enigma Unravelled.

The aim of this review is to highlight the current understanding of HPV-associated oral cancer with an emphasis on its prognosis, detection and management.

Bronchogenic cancer: It still exists

The present study aimed to identify the clinical and immunohistologic features of bronchogenic carcinoma to clearly distinguish this entity from other cystic cervical masses.
