Application of an entropy-based computational strategy to identify genomic markers for molecular detection and typing of human papillomavirus.

Application of an entropy-based computational strategy to identify genomic markers for molecular detection and typing of human papillomavirus. Infect Genet Evol. 2019 Oct 23;:104048 Authors: Barros GS, Araujo ED, Santos FLSG, Batista MVA Abstract Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a diverse group of double-stranded DNA viruses that present high tropism for the epithelium and infect keratinocytes. Currently, over 200 viral types have been identified, and almost 40 types preferentially infect the epithelial cells of the genital tract. Infections caused by HPV are the most prevalent viral infections that are sexually transmitted in the world. Given how HPV infection is one of the key factors in the development of cervical cancer, we need to develop more effective diagnostic methods to correctly diagnose patients. The significance of our research is that we have developed and applied a novel computational approach based on entropy to identify phylogenetically informative genomic regions that could be used as markers for the detection and typing of HPV. We have demonstrated that our strategy is capable of finding phylogenetically informative L1 regions to design a primer set that can be used to accurately detect and genotype HPV isolates.

es are ancient small DNA viruses and represent the most common sexually transmitted infection in the world. In the majority, HPV infection is cleared by an incompletely understood immune response. HPV is a necessary but not sufficient cause of cervical cancer, and responsible for a proportion of other anogenital cancers including vulval, vaginal, anal and oropharyngeal. Oncogenesis is likely mediated through viral proteins which hijack host-cell machinery in epithelial keratinocytes and disrupt host tumour-suppressor proteins.

In this study it was assumed that there was no immunity following resolution of natural infection. The modeling demonstrated that a vaccine of moderate efficacy could have a significant impact on the prevalence of gonorrhea if strategically implemented (23). While encouraging it does, of course, depend on the availability of a vaccine. From Ecological Data to Evidence The epidemiological evidence from Cuba, Brazil, and New Zealand demonstrates that N. meningitidis OMV vaccines are possibly able to provide some broader protection against meningococcal disease (17, 24), particularly in older children and adults (25).

Opinion statementHuman papilloma virus (HPV) infection is the most prevalent among sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). There are more than 100 types of HPV, with the possibility of infection for both male and female, affecting sexual organs, mouth, and throat. The majority of people affected are unaware of the infection. HPV is associated with a large spectrum of clinical features, such as unapparent infections, unspecific epithelial lesions, genital warts, and cancers. Although a consistent and coherent picture about the epidemiology and pathogenesis of genital HPV infections in women has been developed over the past 30...
