Test Information

Human papillomavirus (HPV) infections with low-risk genotypes (6, 11) can cause benign hyperplasia such as condylomas and papillomas. Persistent infections with high-risk genotypes (16, 18, 26, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 53, 56, 58, 59, 66, 68, 73, and 82) are associated with cervical, vaginal, vulvar, and head and neck malignancies. Patients with HPV-related oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) have shown better disease-specific survival and overall survival when compared to HPV-negative cases of OPSCC.
