Occupational exposure of oropharyngeal human papillomavirus amongst otolaryngologists.

Summary of "Occupational exposure of oropharyngeal human papillomavirus amongst otolaryngologists."

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a DNA virus that causes cancer in multiple sites. Although sexual activity is the primary means of oropharyngeal HPV acquisition, studies suggest HPV transmission through occupational exposure from medical instruments and surgical fumes. We assess if aerosolization of HPV16 DNA via electrocautery places otolaryngologists at risk for exposure.

Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.

The exposure to potentially harmful chemical, physical, or biological agents that occurs as a result of one's occupation.

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent PAPILLOMAVIRUS INFECTIONS. Human vaccines are intended to reduce the incidence of UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS, so they are sometimes considered a type of CANCER VACCINES. They are often composed of CAPSID PROTEINS, especially L1 protein, from various types of ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS.

ACNE-like skin eruptions caused by exposure to CHLORINE-containing compounds. Exposure can be by inhalation, ingestion, or through the skin. Chloracne is often seen in people who have occupational contact with chlorinated pesticides, wood preservatives, and sealants.
