HPV-16 E6/E7 DNA tattoo vaccination using genetically optimized vaccines elicit clinical and immunological responses in patients with usual vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (uVIN): a phase I/II clinical trial.

J Immunother Cancer 2021 Aug;9(8)

Center for Gynecologic Oncology Amsterdam (CGOA), The Netherlands Cancer Institute - Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Background: Usual vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (uVIN) is a premalignancy caused by persistent infection with high-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV), mainly type 16. Even though different treatment modalities are available (eg, surgical excision, laser evaporation or topical application of imiquimod), these treatments can be mutilating, patients often have recurrences and 2%-8% of patients develop vulvar carcinoma. Therefore, immunotherapeutic strategies targeting the pivotal oncogenic HPV proteins E6 and E7 are being explored to repress carcinogenesis. Read More

Nodal tumor volume as a prognostic factor for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma: a systematic review.

Front Biosci (Landmark Ed) 2021 Jul;26(7):235-245

1st Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery, Medical School, National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), Hippokrateio Hospital, 11527 Athens, Greece.

: Several studies suggest that there is an association between the metastatic nodal tumor volume and the clinical outcome in patients with solid cancers. However, despite the prognostic potential of nodal volume, a standardized method for estimating the nodal volumetric parameters is lacking. Herein, we conducted a systematic review of the published scientific literature towards investigating the prognostic value of nodal volume in the carcinomas of head and neck, taking into consideration the primary tumor site and the human papillomavirus (HPV) status.

Clin Oncol (R Coll Radiol) 2021 Jul 24. Epub 2021 Jul 24.

Gynaecological Oncology Research Group, Division of Cancer Sciences, University of Manchester, Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health, Manchester, UK; Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, St Mary's Hospital, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, Manchester, UK.

In 2020, the World Health Organization launched a major initiative to eliminate cervical cancer globally. The initiative is built around the three key pillars of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination, cervical screening and treatment, with associated intervention targets for the year 2030. The '90-70-90' targets specify that 90% of adolescent girls receive prophylactic HPV vaccination, 70% of adult women receive a minimum twice-in-a-lifetime cervical HPV test and 90% receive appropriate treatment for preinvasive or invasive disease.

HPV Infection Leaves a DNA Methylation Signature in Oropharyngeal Cancer Affecting Both Coding Genes and Transposable Elements.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Jul 20;13(14). Epub 2021 Jul 20.

Molecular Carcinogenesis Program, Brazilian National Cancer Institute, Rio de Janeiro CEP 20231-050, Brazil.

HPV oncoproteins can modulate DNMT1 expression and activity, and previous studies have reported both gene-specific and global DNA methylation alterations according to HPV status in head and neck cancer. However, validation of these findings and a more detailed analysis of the transposable elements (TEs) are still missing. Here we performed pyrosequencing to evaluate a 5-CpG methylation signature and Line1 methylation in an oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) cohort. Read More

Expression of Retroelements in Cervical Cancer and Their Interplay with HPV Infection and Host Gene Expression.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Jul 14;13(14). Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Oncovirology Program, Instituto Nacional de Câncer (INCA), Rio de Janeiro 20231-050, Brazil.

Retroelements are expressed in diverse types of cancer and are related to tumorigenesis and to cancer progression. We characterized the expression of retroelements in cervical cancer and explored their interplay with HPV infection and their association with expression of neighboring genes. Forty biopsies of invasive cervical carcinoma (squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas) with genotyped HPV were selected and analyzed for human endogenous retrovirus (HERV) and long interspersed nuclear element 1 (L1) expression through RNA-seq data.

Signal Extraction, Transformation, and Magnification for Ultrasensitive and Specific Detection of Nucleic Acids.

Anal Chem 2021 Aug 23;93(30):10611-10618. Epub 2021 Jul 23.

Key Laboratory of Bio-Resource and Eco-Environment of Ministry of Education, College of Life Sciences, Sichuan University, Chengdu 610065, Sichuan, China.

Nucleic acid noises caused by the background and nonspecificity amplifications can jeopardize accurate polymerization and detection of nucleic acids, especially when they are analyzed in low copies. We hypothesize to reduce the noises by designing a system for specific signal extraction, transformation, and magnification to improve the specificity and sensitivity. Herein, by developing an extractor-trigger complex (ET-Combo) for the system, we have established isothermal and hybridizing combined amplifications: a one-pot detection system with two-step amplification coupled by ET-Combo.

The Biological Basis for Enhanced Effects of Proton Radiation Therapy Relative to Photon Radiation Therapy for Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

Int J Part Ther 2021 25;8(1):3-13. Epub 2021 Jun 25.

Department of Radiation Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA.

Head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs) often present as local-regionally advanced disease at diagnosis, for which a current standard of care is x-ray-based radiation therapy, with or without chemotherapy. This approach provides effective local regional tumor control, but at the cost of acute and late toxicity that can worsen quality of life and contribute to mortality. For patients with human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in particular, for whom the prognosis is generally favorable, de-escalation of the radiation dose to surrounding normal tissues without diminishing the radiation dose to tumors is desired to mitigate radiation-related toxic effects.

Evaluation of Integrated HPV DNA as Individualized Biomarkers for the Detection of Recurrent CIN2/3 during Post-Treatment Surveillance.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Jul 1;13(13). Epub 2021 Jul 1.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Frauenheilkunde und Geburtshilfe, Technische Universität Dresden, 01307 Dresden, Germany.

Purpose: Post-treatment follow-up in women with cervical pre-cancers (CIN3) is mandatory due to relapse in up to 10% of patients. Standard follow-up based on hrHPV-DNA/cytology co-testing has high sensitivity but limited specificity. The aim of our prospective, multicenter, observational study was to test the hypothesis that an individualized viral-cellular-junction test (vcj-PCR) combined with cytology has a lower false positive rate for the prediction of recurrence compared to standard co-testing.

A Novel Model for Papillomavirus-Mediated Anal Disease and Cancer Using the Mouse Papillomavirus.

mBio 2021 Jul 20:e0161121. Epub 2021 Jul 20.

McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Healthgrid.471391.9, Madison, Wisconsin, USA.

Up to 95% of all anal cancers are associated with infection by human papillomavirus (HPV); however, no established preclinical model exists for high-grade anal disease and cancer mediated by a natural papillomavirus infection. To establish an infection-mediated model, we infected both immunocompromised NSG and immunocompetent FVB/NJ mice with the recently discovered murine papillomavirus MmuPV1, with and without the additional cofactors of UV B radiation (UVB) and/or the chemical carcinogen 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA). Infections were tracked via lavages and swabs for MmuPV1 DNA, and pathology was assessed at the endpoint. Read More
