CLARES POCHET, María del Carmen et al. Characterization of humoral and cellular immune responses in patients with human papilloma virus . MEDISAN [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.9, pp.1358-1365. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out in 30 females infected with the human papilloma virus, attended in the office of Immunology of the Specialty Polyclinic belonging to "Saturnino Lora" Provincial Clinical Surgical Teaching Hospital in Santiago de Cuba, from June 2009 to June 2010, in order to characterize them according to immune response. To evaluate the humoral and cellular immune response rosetting assay and quantification of immunoglobulines were used respectively. Women between 25-36 years of age (40 %) infected with this virus, especially those coming from urban areas, prevailed in the series, and a significant decrease of the cellular response as compared to the humoral response was evidenced.

Keywords : woman; infection; human papilloma virus; cellular immune response; humoral immune response; primary health care.
