Abstract

The polymerase chain reaction has been used to determine the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) 16 and HPV 18 DNA sequences in archival histological material removed from a cohort of untreated women with cervical epithelial abnormalities. The detection of HPV 16 or HPV 18 DNA sequences in the initial biopsy specimen was associated with a significantly increased risk of subsequent disease progression.
