Clinical Significance

The presence of E6/E7 messenger RNA from 14 high risk HPV types indicates incorporation of HPV DNA into the host cells. Proteins expressed from E6-E7 polycistronic mRNA alter cellular p53 and retinoblastoma protein functions, leading to disruption of cell-cycle check points and cell genome instability. This information, together with the physician’s assessment of cytology history, other risk factors, and professional guidelines, may be used to guide patient management.
