Prevalence and distribution of human papillomavirus type-16 DNA in pelvic nodes of patients with cervical cancer and in women with no history of cervical abnormality.
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to investigate the prevalence and distribution of human papillomavirus (HPV)-16 DNA in paraffin sections of all pelvic lymph nodes removed from 14 patients with Stage Ib-cervical cancer at the time of resection of their primary tumours.
The results were compared with those obtained from 8 women with no known history of cervical abnormality.
In all, 22 cervical biopsies and 401 lymph nodes (296 paraffin blocks) were examined.
