The prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and other risk factors were studied in a high risk area for cervical cancer (Greenland) and in a low risk area (Denmark).
From Nuuk (Greenland) and NykObing Falster (Denmark), random samples of 150 women aged 20-39 years were drawn.
A total of 129 and 126 women were included in Greenland and Denmark, respectively.
The proportion of HPV infected women assessed by ViraPap was similar in Denmark and Greenland (4.8 vs 3.9%). When type specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used, the total HPV detection rate was 38.9% in the Danish population and 43.4% in the Greenlandic.
