Infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) types called beta HPVs may be associated with an increased risk of developing a major type of skin cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), according to a new study in the March 15 issue of the In addition, the presence of antibodies to multiple types of HPV was associated with the highest risk of SCC, but the association had limited statistical p...

HPV testing a cost-effective strategy for women with equivocal cervical screening results

A new study has found that using human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA testing to determine who should receive a cervical examination called colposcopy is a cost-effective management strategy for women with equivocal Pap test results known as ASCUS (atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance). The study appears in the January 18 issue of the ...... About 5% of all Pap tests result in a diagno...
