To determine whether the status of human-papillomavirus (HPV) infection affects the clinical outcome of cervical carcinoma (CC), HPV genotype was prospectively determined in 94 consecutive CC cases subsequently followed for a median duration of 37.5 months. With a consensus PCR-RFLP method of HPV genotyping, 81 (86.2%) cancers were positive for HPV DNA. They were classified, according to the phylogenic similarities, into HPV-16-related (type 16, n = 45; type 31, n = 2), HPV-58-related (type 58, n = 17; type 33, n = 3; type 52, n = 2) and HPV-18-related (type 18, n = 8; type 68, n = 1) groups, and analyzed in relation to clinical outcome. The following results were observed: (i) Type-58-related HPVs were more prevalent in the old age (older than the median age of 52) group than in the young age group (41% vs. 14.6%, p = 0.045); (ii) 63% (5/8) of patients with advanced stages (III and IV) were HPV-negative, a figure much higher than that (9.3%, 8/84) of patients with early stages (stage I and II) (p = 0.002); (iii) the occurrence of adenocarcinoma or adenosquamous carcinoma was higher in the HPV-18-related group (50%) than in the HPV-16-related (33.3%) or the HPV-58-related (16.7%) groups (p = 0.024); (iv) the status of lymph-node metastasis and tumor grade did not correlate with HPV status; (v) 5-year survival rates were 90.2%, 80% and 74% for HPV-58-, HPV-16- and HPV-18-related groups, respectively (p = 0.03, after adjustment for tumor stage); (vi) in comparison with the HPV-16- related group, the relative risk of death in the HPV-58- and the HPV-18- related groups were 0.32 [95% CI, 0.07-1.49] and 1.87 [0.36-14.9] respectively. HPV genotype appears to affect the clinical behavior and outcome of cervical cancer. HPV-58-related types are prevalent in the older population, and appear to confer a favorable prognosis.
