The Human Papiloma Virus VPH is a DNA Virus. More than 100 types of HPV VPH have been detected by Molecular Biology and many of them(aproximately 30 types) are related to Feminine and Masculine Genitalia infections.
Each HPV Virus has his own DNA information with individual characteristics, that make HPV more or less agressive for Human Body, being some of them related to different types of cancer.
Human Papiloma Virus ( VPH Virus) infects the skin and mucouse membranes. It is estimated that 60% of men and woman will get a genital HPV infection at some point in their lives. HPV VIRUS infections are spread Through genital contact.(sexual intercourse)
According to Molecular Biology technics (Protein Chain Reaction, PCR) HPV Virus qualify in two groups for Femenine Genitalia infections, the first one(called low risk types of HPV or non Tumoral HPV viruses) related to benign Genital Warts and the second group(called high risk or tumoral HPV VPH viruses) to pre-malignant or malignant (Cervival Cancer, and others)lesions and Genital Warts also.
DNA Technologies, PCR (More used in our Medical Institute) and Hibrid Capture permit us an early and accurate detection of HPV VPH in the uterine cervix with 100% sesibility.
Protein Chain Reaction (PCR) is also specific to detect the type of HPV VPH responsable for the infection.
HPV VPH is also cause of pre-malignant and malignant Penis, Vaginal, Vulvar, Anal, Oral Cavity, etc, lesions, depending on the type of HPV VPH that is infecting.
Inmune system fights off HPV VPH VIRUS in most of infected patients, but in some of them a persisting infection can couse, normal cells, to become abnormal.
Big differences were observed between results obtaind to detect HPV VPH by PAP (Papanicolaou) Smears only, and PCR or Hibrid Capture.
PCR and HIBRID CAPTURE (HPV VPH TEST) are highly top for an early and preventive diagnosis of HPV VPH infections.
The main goal of this page is trying to explain the importance of doing HPV VPH TEST (PCR or Hibrid Capyure) as a rutin exam with Pap Smear and colposcopy to prevent cervical, an other types of cancer, detecting HPV VPH VIRUS in early stages.
