Abstract

The human papillomavirus types that are causally linked to genital cancer originated in ancient times in prehuman primates. The molecular diversity of viral isolates reflects the African origins and the subsequent worldwide spread of human races. The lack of transmission of papillomaviruses between species may support a gradual mode of molecular evolution.
