Prevalence of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) genotypes in south-central Sicily: a comparative study between 2003 and 2011
AbstractThis issue is about our Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) DNA test. We have examined two cohorts of patients from south-central Sicily, who were tested for HPV -DNA derived from cervical sampling, respectively in 2003 and 2011. In 2003, the most represented genotypes were: 31, 16. Instead, in 2011 there was a higher prevalence for genotypes: 42, 16. It is remarkable to note that the 35 genotype, noticed in 2003, has never been found in the second most recent group.
