The causal link between human papillomavirus and invasive cervical cancer : a population-based case-control study in Colombia and Spain.
To evaluate the association between human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer, we performed a population-based case-control study in Colombia and Spain, the former country having an incidence rate of cervical cancer about 8 times higher than the latter.
It included 436 cases of histologically confirmed invasive cervical cancer and 387 randomly selected population controls.
Information on demographic variables, sexual behaviour and other risk factors was obtained by interview.
HPV-DNA was measured in cervical-swab specimens with 3 hybridization assays: ViraPap, Southern hybridization (SH) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
