Prevalence of human papillomavirus infection in the genital tract determined by hybrid capture assay

Abstract: Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the most prevalent sexually-transmitted virus worldwide. It is known to be the etiological agent of cervical cancer and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). Consequently, there is strong motivation to evaluate HPV testing in cervical cancer screening. Recently developed, the second generation of the hybrid capture test (HCA II) is a non-radioactive, relatively rapid, hybridization assay, designed to detect 18 HPV types divided into high and low-risk groups. We evalu… Show more

“…Viral infections were observed in 44% of the women. This finding agrees with previous studies where a comparable population and methodology of analysis was used [4,14]. Epidemiological studies showed that almost 50% of sexually active women between 15 and 49 years old are infected by HPV, becoming a worldwide public health problem [4,14].…”

“…Studies on cervical cancer screening using HPV test showed remarkable variation in positive prevalence, which was reported to be as high as 40% in some study (Carestiato et al, 2006). However, the information that could be reliably used as a basis for strategic decision and resource allocation in cancer screening and prevention should derive from a population-based study in each region (Sharma et al, 2013).…”
