MBL2 gene polymorphisms are correlated with high-risk human papillomavirus infection but not with human papillomavirus-related cervical cancer

Abstract

We investigated whether there is a correlation between MBL2 polymorphisms and the host susceptibility to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and cancer development. Toward this end, we analyzed MBL2 exon 1 polymorphisms in 172 women infected by strains of HPV that are associated with h...read more

Basal cell carcinoma is a form of malignant skin cancer found on the head and neck regions and has low rates of metastasis. Discover the latest research on basal cell carcinoma here.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection is a common sexually transmitted infection that is associated with the development of cervical and head and neck cancers. Discover the latest research on Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Infection here.

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.

Complement Pathway: Mannose-Binding Lectin

The Mannose-Binding Lectin Complement Pathway is activated when mannose-binding lectin binds to mannose found on the surface of pathogens. Subsequent complement activation is similar to the classical complement pathway, but without the need for antigen-antibody complexes. Discover the latest research here.

Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma And Endocervical Adenocarcinoma

The cervix contains two types of cells and when cancer arises from squamous cells within the cervix it is cervical squamous cell carcinoma. The endocervix is located just above the body of the cervix and contains glandular cells. When cancer begins here it is called endocervical adenocarcinoma. Here is the latest research on these two types of cancers.
