PREVALENCE OF HPV HIGH-RISK GENOTYPES IN THREE COHORTS OF WOMEN IN OUAGADOUGOU (BURKINA FASO)

By Theodora M. Zohoncon and Jacques Simpore

Abstract

The development of cervical cancer is ​​associated with high-risk Human papilloma viruses (HPV-HR). In sub-Saharan Africa cervical cancer is the most common cancer among women and the leading cause of death attributed to malignant tumors. This study aims to identify HPV genotypes within the 30'S and 50'S HPV families found in two previous studies from our laboratory, and to determine the prevalence of twelve HPV-HR genotypes in a population of women in Ouagadougou. The twelve HPV-HR genotypes were determined by real-time multiplex PCR, in 180 samples from the general population and among a group of HIV-1 infected women. The most common genotypes found were HPV 35 (29.4%) and HPV 31 (26.1%) of the 30’S family, and HPV 52 (29.4%) and HPV 58 (20.6%) of the 50'S family. Multiple infections of HPV-HR were observed in 78.03% of infected women. The frequencies of HPV genotypes from the 30'S and 50'S families were higher, while the genotypes HPV-16 and18 were lower among the women in our study
