Background: Cervical cancer is a major global public health problem and the third worldwide leading cause of cancer death among women. In developing countries, cervical cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women with more than 85% of cases and deaths worldwide where the availability of effective screening is limited. HPV has been involved in 99.7 % of cervical squamous cell cancer cases worldwide. Knowledge of high-risk Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) subtypes might be helpful for the development of strategies for decreasing the burden of risk of cervical cancer. Therefore, the aim of this study was to screen for some HR-HPV subtypes that are less common in many regions.
A total of 150tissue samples obtained from patients with cervical cancer in addition to 50 tissue samples obtained from patients with benign cervical lesions, were investigated for the presence of HPV subtypes 52,56,58,59 and 66 by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR).
The prevalence of HPV subtypes 52,56,58,59, and 66, among cases was 0.6%, 0%, 4%, 3.3% and 0% respectively.
HPV subtypes 58 and 59 have a considerable contribution to etiology of cervical cancer in Yemen that requires further consideration. Also during the presentation, we will discuss the prevalence of another high risk of HPV including type 16,18,31,35,39,45 and other types which are very important in the application of vaccination strategy that leads to reducing the incidence rate of cervical cancer as in many developed countries.
