THE DETECTION OF HPV COMMON ANTIGEN IN TRANSITIONAL CELL CARCINOMA OF THE BLADDER

By ΜΑΡΙΑ ΧΟΡΤΗ

Abstract

ONE HUNDRED CASES OF TRANSITIONAL CELL CARCINOMA WERE STUDIED FOR THE DETECTIONOF HPV COMMON ANTIGEN, USING AS CRITERION THE PRESENCE OF KOILOCYTIC ATYPIA. SEVENTY ONE CARCINOMAS WERE PAPILLARY AND 29 SOLID KOILOCYTES WERE POSITIVE FOR HPV CAPSID ANTIGEN MORE OFTEN THAN OTHER EPITHELIAR CELLS. HPV ANTIGEN WAS DETECTED IN 13% OF THE CASES. SAFE CONCLUSIONS ON BIOLOGICAL BEHAVIOUR OF THE VIRUS IN RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BLADDER CANCER DUE TO LIMITED DATA IN CONTRAST TO SIMILAR STUDIES ON GENITAL CANCER, A SAFE CORRELATION BETWEEN THE BIOLOGICALBEHAVIOUR OF THE VIRUS AND BLADDER CARCINOMA CAN NOT BE SAFELY DRAWN.
