Article excerpt

Background: Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection has been identified as a major risk factor for invasive cervical cancer. Based on their presence in cervical carcinoma speci- mens these genotypes are classified as high-risk or low-risk. In this study We evaluated different specimens genotyping to identify HPV genotypes that are more common in Iran.

Methods: This cross sectional study was conducted in Mas- soud laboratory in Tehran during 2011. Seventy two symp- tomatic patients attending the laboratory entered to this study and their samples were evaluated using PCR. Twenty five samples were positive for HPV DNA.
