    Sammanfattning : Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among women worldwide and human papillomavirus (HPV) is a prerequisit for the development of this cancer. HPV belongs to the Papillomaviridae family and infects the basal layer of epithelial cells where it generally progresses into warts or condylomas. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Papillomavirus binding and entry : The heparan sulfate receptor and inhibition by lactoferrin

    Författare :Peter Drobni; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Papillomaviruses (PVs) infect epithelial cells and are the main causative agent of cervical carcinoma. There are today more than a hundred different PV types and these can be divided into high risk and low risk types. They infect differentiating epithelial cells which make it cumbersome to propagate and produce human papillomavirus (HPV) virions. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Studies on tumor virus epidemiology

    Författare :Davit Bzhalava; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The causal relationship between several virus infections and human cancers are well established. However, it is also possible that additional cancers may be caused by known or yet unknown viruses. LÄS MER
