Human Papillomavirus Genotyping


At the Department of Molecular Diagnostics and Oncogenetics in Todua Clinic, it is possible to test for human papillomavirus using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method.


Human papillomavirus (HPV) is an infectious agent that is mainly transmitted through sexual contact. Men and women are equally likely to get  infected with the virus.


Infection with the papilloma virus is particularly noteworthy because it is often the cause of various cancers. These include vaginal, vulvar, cervical, penile, colorectal and throat cancers.


More than 100 types of papillomavirus are known, some of which are considered to be of particularly high oncogenic risk.


Papillomaviruses with a low oncogenic risk can cause the appearance of visible genital warts.


  Although they are not considered to be malignant tumor-causing agents, they can cause discomfort and affect the quality of life.
