Data help define relationship between HPV, bladder cancer

Article

“HPV6 positive serology was associated with an increased odds of bladder cancer, and I saw a trend in that it was younger patients with bladder cancer who had the HPV6 positivity,” says Lael S. Reinstatler, MD, MPH, in this video interview.

While previous research has shown a potential relationship between human papillomavirus (HPV) and bladder cancer, a recently reported study has more clearly defined this association.

At the Genitourinary Cancers Symposium in San Francisco, the authors of a study using a large, nationally representative database reported a significant association of HPV6 positive serology with a diagnosis of bladder cancer.

“HPV6 positive serology was associated with an increased odds of bladder cancer, and I saw a trend in that it was younger patients with bladder cancer who had the HPV6 positivity,” said first author Lael S. Reinstatler, MD, MPH, of Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center Lebanon, NH.

 

In this Urology Times video, Dr. Reinstatler describes the study’s unique methodology, other key findings, and the next steps in her group’s research.
