This study examined the risk factors for genital human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, including HIV-related immunosuppression as well as demographic and behavioral factors.
Subjects were 207 women with known HIV serologic status, the majority of whom were intravenous drug users recruited from a methadone treatment program in the Bronx, New York.
A structured questionnaire interview, cervico-vaginal lavage, and CD4 cell measurements were obtained.
HPV genomes in the cervico-vaginal cells were detected by Southern-blot hybridization: HPV prevalence was 23% among HIV seronegatives, 45% among HIV seropositives with CD4 percent >20 and 61% among HIV seropositives with CD4 percent <=20.
