The human papillomavirus (HPV) is certainly one of the few viruses associated with cancer and is present in a significant number of cancers of the anus, penis, vagina, vulva and in almost all cervical cancers.The aim of our work is to evaluate the impact of genotypes high-risk oncogenic (HR) in low-grade (LSIL) and high grade (HSIL) intraepithelial lesions. In it are also evaluated the impact of genotypes low oncogenic risk (LR) and the percentage of non-detection (NR) Papillomavirus DNA Between January 2008 and June 2009 we submitted for HPV DNA genotyping test 392 patients, seronegative for HIV1/2, of which 278 with LSIL and 114 with HSIL. In 250 patients tested positive for HPV DNA HR the type 16 is present in 102 patients (41%), the 18 in 62 (25%), the 31 in 37 patients (15%), the 33 in 13 patients (5%); also was limited the simultaneous presence of 16 and 18 (13 patients 5%) The search for HPV DNA is a modern method of study of cervical pathology. Optimizes the follow-up of intraepithelial lesions and the therapeutic intervention, avoiding the dangers of over/ undertreatment and allows to monitor women treated for cervical pathology.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
