Human Papillomavirus Types 6 and 11 in Tumours
Human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6 and 11 are known to be associated with tumours of the upper respiratory tract and anogenital region. Their presence has been demonstrated by a variety of techniques, particularly in benign tumours at these sites. The extremely sensitive polymerase chain reaction indicates that these viruses are more widespread than was previously thought; they are frequently associated with malignant tumours and also with tissue showing no histological abnormality.
