Scientists map interactions between head and neck cancer and HPV virus

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is widely known to cause nearly all cases of cervical cancer. However, you might not know that HPV also causes 70 percent of oropharyngeal cancer, a subset of head and neck cancers that affect the mouth, tongue, and tonsils. Although vaccines that protect against HPV infection are now available, they are not yet widespread, especially in men, nor do they address the large number of currently infected cancer patients. Patients with head and neck cancer caused by HPV respond very differently to treatments than those whose cancer is associated with the consumption of tobacco products. The first...

Washington: A recent study indicates that if a woman has previously had a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the risk of having a second child with ASD is more than in the general. In a number of recent studies, researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute made enormous strides toward ASD prediction and diagnosis. Estimates indicated that if a mother has previously had a child with ASD, the risk of having a second child with ASD is approximately 18.7 per cent, whereas the risk of ASD in the general population is approximately 1.7 per cent. "However," said Hahn, a researcher, "it...
