EWSR1-ATF1 gene fusions seem to be specific for this salivaryneoplasm... P16 immunohistochemical staining to determine human papillomavirus (HPV) status has become standard practice for all oropharyngealcarcinomas showing squamous differentiation. The purpose of this study was to determine whether this practice could contribute to the difficulty in distinguishing CCC from p16-positive SqCC.

AbstractText: Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines can potentially prevent greater than 90% of cervical and anal cancers as well as a substantial proportion of vulvar, vaginal, penile, and oropharyngealcancers caused by certain HPV types. Because more than 38,000 HPV-associated cancers are diagnosed annually in the United States, current studies are needed to understand how relative survival varies for ...
In addition to the reported associations of Hepatitis B and C virus (HBV & HCV) with liver cancer, and Human papillomaviruses (HPV) with cervical cancer and a subset of head and neckcancers, we found additional cases of HPV integrated in a small number of bladder cancers. Gene expression and mutational profiles suggest that HPV drives tumorigenesis in these cases Keyword ...
