NCT ID: NCT00520078 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Human Papillomavirus

Clinicopathological and Molecular Correlation of Acrochordon in Relation to Human Papillomavirus Infection

Start date: August 2007
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Acrochordon, or soft fibroma, is a common benign skin tumor which is generally regarded as a sign of cutaneous aging or as a reaction to friction since it occurs in the intertriginous areas. Recent studies have shown the presence of human papillomaviruses, especially the mucosal types, on some of the intertriginous lesions. This study is to analyze the different clinical presentations of acrochordon and correlate them with pathologic and molecular human papillomavirus findings. Further goal is to improve the ability to differentiate acrochordon and its possible prevention and treatment. Also, it may have an implication on the transmission and prevention of cervical carcinoma.
