Marine Biological Laboratory summer investigator wins Nobel Prize in Chemistry
...ell, including cervical cancer caused by the human papilloma
virus. Because it is involved in the body's inflammatory response to invading microbes, it may also play a role in autoimmune diseases. Hershko has been a summer investigator at the Marine Biological Laboratory since 1991. He was drawn to the MBL ...

Small molecules overcome drug resistance in cancers associated with high-risk viruses
... treatment of cancers that are linked to the human papilloma
virus (HPV) oncoprotein E6, such as cervical cancer. Certain viral oncoproteins, including HPV E6, are known to interfere with the function of a protein called p53, a key tumor suppressor involved in apoptosis. Loss of p53 is linked to uncontrolled c...
Researchers discover inhibitor of infection by HPV
...rs have discovered a potent inhibitor of the human papilloma
viruses (HPV), particularly those types that cause cervical cancer and genital warts, according to a study published in PLoS Pathogens. The inhibitor is found in commercially available products, including sexual lubricants and baby food. In laborat...
High HPV concentrations combined with smoking significantly raise risks of cervical cancer
...ne the relationships between smoking and the human papilloma
virus (HPV). The virus and smoking behavior have long been associated with the disease, but not enough evidence has come forth to determine how either may cause the disease. Gunnell's study, in fact, suggests that both may create a biochemical syne...

Common mechanisms for viral DNA replication
...hough T-ag and its functionally analogous protein, papilloma
virus E1, share no detectable sequence homology in this region, the two domains bind the DNA in similar ways. In both cases, DNA binding is thought to initiate assembly of a complex of the full-length proteins on DNA. Interestingly, SV40 T-ag DNA-bin...
Arizona State University and Mayo Clinic join forces to develop cancer vaccine
... Miller noted that the recent success of the human papilloma
virus vaccine to prevent cervical cancer supports this concept. "Clearly, our arsenal of therapeutics and knowledge of cancer has significantly advanced since the 'war on cancer' was declared a generation ago, but there are still entirely too many...

virus vaccine, developed to prevent cervical cancer in young women, I think the urgency to develop a Chlamydia prevention vaccine is on the horizon," said Arulanandam. The UTSA researchers have been working with Guangming Zhong, a professor of mi...
CSHL research ties harmless viruses to cancer

virus, which can cause cervical cancer, makes a protein that binds to paxillin and that interaction may contribute to the carcinogenic potential of the sexually transmitted virus. Chien and Hu obtained cells for their most recent study from the inn...
