|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||HPV Prevalence in the Mouth and Oropharynx of the General Population|
- Occurrence of HPV in tonsils and in oral scrape sample [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- HPV vaccination status [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
Saliva, Urine, Whole Blood, Mouth brush biopsies (scrapes) and tonsillectomy specimens
|Study Start Date:||August 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||July 2015|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||July 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Subjects undergoing tonsillectomy for non-cancer reasons including operations for: recurrent tonsillitis, asymmetric tonsils, snoring surgery or obstructive sleep apnoea.
