Human Papillomavirus Infection of the Mouth in Young Men and Risk Factors for Oropharyngeal Cancer
Oral HPV Infection in Young Men

RATIONALE: Gathering information about human papillomavirus infection of the mouth in young men may help doctors learn more about risk factors for oropharyngeal cancer.

PURPOSE: This research study is assessing human papillomavirus infection of the mouth in young men and risk factors for oropharyngeal cancer.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Estimate the prevalence of oral human papillomavirus (HPV) type 16, 18, 6, or 11 infection in young adult men.
  • Assess the independent effect of distinct sexual practices, including kissing, oral sex, and vaginal intercourse, on oral HPV prevalence.
  • Estimate the 6-month incidence of HPV infection in this study population.

OUTLINE: Participants are assessed for oral human papillomavirus virus (HPV) infection (i.e., types 16, 18, 6, and 11) and for known or potential risk factors associated with the infection, including sexual behavior (e.g., kissing, performing oral sex, or vaginal intercourse), demographic characteristics (e.g., age or race), and history of HPV or other sexually transmitted infections. Prior exposure to HPV vaccine is also assessed.

Oral rinse samples are collected from participants at baseline and at 6 months for detection of HPV genomic DNA in oral exfoliated cells. Baseline serum samples are also collected.

Observational
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Not Provided
Retention:   Samples With DNA
Description:

Laboratory Methods:

Oral rinse sample:

Standard, well-validated assays will be used to detect HPV genomic DNA in oral exfoliated cells from the Scope oral rinse sample.

Serum sample:

Standard laboratory assays will be used to detect antibodies to HPV16 L1 viral capsid protein.

Probability Sample
A convenience sample of 500 men recruited from Baltimore-area college health centers (Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland, or Towson University).
  • Head and Neck Cancer
  • Infection
  • Precancerous Condition
  • Genetic: comparative genomic hybridization
  • Genetic: gene expression analysis
  • Other: study of socioeconomic and demographic variables
  • Procedure: evaluation of cancer risk factors
  • Procedure: study of high risk factors
