Taxonomy

Taxonomy

  • Family: Papillomaviridae

  • Genus:

    • Alphapapillomavirus

      • Approximately 70 species (6, 11,16,18,)

    • Betapapillomavirus

      • Approximately 20 species

    • Gammapapillomavirus

      • 7 species

    • Mupapillomavirus

      • 2 species

    • Nupapillomavirus

      • 1 species


What is hpv

What is HPV?

  • HPV is a double-stranded DNA virus that is a sexually transmitted disease (STD)

  • Over 100 different strains, more than 30 sexually transmittable

  • Targets:

    • Skin and mucosal membranes

      • Oral mucosa

      • Esophagus

      • Larynx (voice box)

      • Trachea (airway)

      • Conjunctiva of the eye

      • Cervix primarily affected, but also vagina, penis, etc. \

      • Hand, Feet,

  • Strains 16 and 18 considered “High Risk,” cancer-causing types

  • Strains 6 and 11 considered “High Risk” and responsible for genital warts


Symptoms of infection

Symptoms of Infection!

  • Typically, no signs of infection

  • Infections usually transient, but can be carried dormant for days/months/years

  • Genital warts may develop weeks or months after initial infection

  • Genital cancer can result from infection


The hpv genome

The HPV Genome


Hpv and cancer

HPV and Cancer

  • Strains 6, 11, 16, and 18 responsible for 70% of cervical cancer and 90% genital warts

  • Strain 16 prevalent in penile carcinoma

  • Viral genes E6 and E7 are oncogenes

    • E6 subjugates cellular p53 protein

    • E7 subjugates cellular pRB protein

    • p53 and pRB are critical for regulation of cancerous cells


Diagnostic tests

Diagnostic tests

  • Pap test should be done approx. 3 years after the onset of sexual activity or earlier

  • Around 55 million Pap tests are performed each year

  • 3.5 million tests show abnormality

  • Pap test should be done once every three years (depending on the test result)

  • To get a free or low-cost Pap test, please call 1800-4-CANCER

  • As of now, there are no diagnostic tests to be done for men

The area where the two types of cells reside is where the sample tissue is taken from and sent out to have PAP test done


Epidemiology

Epidemiology

  • HPV is the most common STD in the US

  • 20 million Americans infected (15% population)

    • Over half infected 15-24 years old

    • Approx. 30% infected with multiple strains

  • 6.2 million new infections each year

  • By age of 50, at least 80% of women will have been infected

  • In 2006, >9,700 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer and 3,700 will die


Risk factors and prevention

Risk Factors and Prevention

  • No “cure” for HPV – prevention most effective

    • Regular gynecological exams

    • Frequent, proper screening for cervical cancer

      • Pap Test (Three years after the onset of sexual activity)

        • Colonoscopy

    • Abstinence

    • Use of condoms

  • Risk Factors:

    • “High risk” sexual activity

    • Smoking

    • Co-infections


Treatment hpv vaccine

Treatment – HPV Vaccine

  • “Gardasil” vaccine Approved by FDA on June 8, 2006

  • Protects against HPV strains 6, 11, 16, and 18

  • Made from non-infectious virus-like particles (VLPs)

  • Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends use of vaccine for females 9-26 years of age

  • Cryosurgery - Freezing off the warts

Virus-like particles assembled from L1 protein of HPV16


Treatment current research

Treatment – Current Research

  • RNA Interference

    • Targets high-risk HPV strain 16

    • Inhibits E6 oncogene expression

    • Great potential, but very new (more testing)

  • Blockage of estrogen receptors

    • Estrogen may stimulate HPV oncogene expression

    • Also very new
