ABSTRACT Existen cerca de 200 tipos distintos de Virus de Papiloma Humano (VPH), de los cuales alrededor de 70 están asociados con neoplasias anogenitales. De ellos, un sub-grupo se encuentra frecuentemente asociado a la formación de lesiones escamosas intraepiteliales y carcinomas, por ello, se ha denominado de "alto" riesgo. Varios reportes han demostrado que los hombres que tienen sexo con hombres (HSH) y que son positivos al VIH, presentan una mayor incidencia de lesiones precursoras y de cáncer anal que aquellos que no lo son. En este trabajo se realizó un estudio con 31 pacientes hombres VIH positivos que tienen sexo con hombres, para determinar la prevalencia de infecciones con VPH. Se utilizó la prueba de captura de híbridos II, que permite la detección de 18 tipos virales distintos. Encontramos una alta prevalencia de VPH en el epitelio anal de estos pacientes, que alcanza casi el 75%. El 58% de los pacientes fue positivo para ambos tipos virales ("alto" y "bajo" riesgo) mediante esta prueba, lo cual indica que un alto porcentaje de estos pacientes presenta infección múltiple de VPH. Este estudio enfatiza la necesidad de hacer la detección oportuna de infecciones de VPH en hombres que tienen sexo con hombres y son VIH positivos.

    ABSTRACT: Background Men who have sex with men (MSM) have been identified as a high-risk group for anal cancer. HPV has been found associated with this neoplasia as it has been in cervical cancer. Concurrent infection with HIV may facilitate or accelerate the pathological consequences of HPV infections. In Mexico, where cervical cancer is a major public health problem, little is known about the prevalence of anal cancer and the role of HPV in the HIV-positive population of MSM. Methods: We analysed 323 anal exudates from HIV-positive MSM, from the HIV Clinic at Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición 'Salvador Zubirán', in Mexico City. Extraction and purification of DNA was performed with the Genomics Wizard kit (Promega), HPV detection was performed by PCR using primers MY09/11. All negative samples underwent a PCR for identification of fragment of the β-globin gene to check DNA integrity. Positive samples were subjected to PCR using specific primers for E6 of type 16, and the LCR from type 18. The identification of variants was determined by sequencing the E6 gene and the LCR of 40 samples positive for HPV type 16, using the Big Dye terminator kit and AB Prism 3100. We used INNO-LiPA HPV Genotyping Extra kit (INNOGENETICS), for the identification of 28 different types of HPV using SPF10 primers in these samples. Results: The prevalence of HPV in the anal epithelium of 323 patients was high (86%). 28% were positive for type 16, and 9% for type 18. Among those patients who were type 16+, all except one were co-infected with other HPV types that included 21 different types present in the following order: 11, 51, 52, 66, 68, 74, 18, 45, 35, 26, 44, 70, 53, 54, 82, 31, 33, 56, 58, 59. In addition, in these patients, European variants were the most prevalent, followed by Asian American ones. Conclusions: The prevalence of HPV was high in the anal canal of a group of 323 HIV+ MSM in Mexico City. A group of 40 HPV16-positive patients showed multiple co-infections with other different HPV types. In addition, European variants of type 16 were the most prevalent. This study emphasises the need for an early detection of HPV infections in the anal canal of MSM who are positive for HIV in order to avoid progression to anal neoplasia.

    ABSTRACT: Background Anal cancer has become one of the most common non-AIDS-defined tumors among Human Immunodeficiency Virus-positive (HIV+) individuals, and a rise in its incidence among HIV+ Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) has been shown, despite the introduction of Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy (HAART). Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infections are highly prevalent among HIV+ MSM and recent studies have shown high rates of HPV-associated anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN) and anal cancer among this population.Methods In the present study we determined the prevalence and nature of HPV co-infections in the anal canal of 324 HIV+ MSM attending a high specialty medical center in Mexico City, DNA extraction and amplification with generic primers for HPV was performed, followed by detection of specific types and co-infections with INNO-Lipa, and identification of variants by amplification and sequencing of the E6 and LCR region of HPV 16.ResultsWe found a very high prevalence of HPV infections among this cohort (86%), with more than one fourth of them (28%) positive for type 16. Among HPV16-positive patients, European variants were the most prevalent, followed by Asian-American ones. Among these individuals (HPV-16+), we identified co-infections with other 21 HPV types namely; 11, 51, 52, 6, 66, 68, 74, 18, 45, 35, 26, 44, 70, 53, 54, 82, 31, 33, 56, 58, 59.ConclusionsHIV+ MSM show a very high rate of HPV infections in the anal canal and those with type 16 exhibited a multiplicity of associated types. This study emphasizes the need for an early detection of HPV infections among HIV+ MSM in order to establish its utility to prevent anal neoplasia and cancer.
