  1. Genital types of papillomavirus in children of women with HIV-1 infection in Kinshasa, Zaire.

    Article - En anglais

    Increasing evidence indicates that infection with genital types of human papillomavirus (HPV) can occur prior to the onset of sexual activity, possibly by perinatal transmission.

    Evidence is also accumulating that women infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) more frequently express HPV.

    We conducted this study to measure HPV prevalence in HIV-seropositive and -seronegative women in Kinshasa, Zaire and in their children.

    We collected cervico-vaginal lavage specimens from 80 mothers (52 HIV-seropositive and 28 HIV-seronegative at the time of delivery) and oropharyngeal and perineal specimens from their 813-year old children (21 HIV-seropositive and 60-seronegative).

    We used the ViraPap and ViraType assay to test specimens for HPV DNA by the dot-blot technique.
