Abstract:   (1740 Views)
Background: Prostate cancer (PCa), as the fifth leading cause of death, is the second most common cancer diagnosis in men worldwide. Human papillomavirus (HPV) can potentially contribute to PCa development and chronic inflammation. HPV infection leads to malignant and benign lesions in the genital areas of men and women. The data on the role of HPV in PCa development is contradictory. 
Objective: This study aims to investigate the frequency of HPV in PCa samples in hospitals in Tabriz City, Iran.
Methods: This study was conducted in a cross-sectional descriptive manner. Paraffin tissue blocks including 50 patients with primary prostate adenocarcinoma and 50 patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) were selected from Tabriz hospitals. All samples were examined for the presence of HPV16/18 by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method.
Findings: 3 out of 50 PCa patients are infected with HPV18. None of the benign and malignant prostate samples are infected with HPV 16. Therefore, in our study, no connection exists between HPV and PCa. The Mean±SD age of HPV positive samples was 61.33±11.50 years.
Conclusion: The result of this research does not support the role of HPV in the development of PCa. Therefore, additional studies are necessary to clarify the possible role of HPV in prostate carcinogenesis.
