Abstract [en]

Information on HPV type distribution in cervical cancer in situ in different populations is needed for evaluation of prophylactic vaccination programs targeting HPV 16 and 18. In our study, the HPV type prevalence in 1,079 Swedish women from multicase families diagnosed with cervical cancer in situ 1965-1993 was investigated using real-time PCR and archival tissue material. HPV type information was obtained for 974 samples. Among these, HPV 16 (61%) was the dominant type followed by HPV 33/52/58 (24%), HPV 31 (13%) and HPV 18/45 (12%). The detected prevalence of HPV 16 among cancer in situ decreased by 13% over the study period while the group of low frequency high-risk types increased. Related women were not prone to infection by the same type. These data suggest that the prevalence of individual HPV types has changed over time in Swedish patients with cervical cancer in situ. Large-scale studies of pathology biobank materials will enable further insight into the temporal changes of individual HPV types, as baseline information to properly evaluate the effect of vaccine programs. The findings also indicate that genetic susceptibility to cervical cancer operates through general and not type specific susceptibility to HPV infection.
