Human papillomavirus DNA prevalence remains high and steady among older women in Nigeria, suggesting an unusual epidemiologic pattern for a sexually transmitted infection. In a project with etiologic and preventive significance, NCI and Nigerian investigators are collaborating to investigate this unusual pattern in a rural village with unique sociologic and health conditions, focusing on application of state-of-the art screening and diagnostic methods, as well as immunologic biomarkers.
