Strong suspected etiologic role of infectious agentsThe link to immune status strongly supports the role of the agent in NMSC. Biological and epidemiological studies show that connected a subset of cutaneous human papillomavirus , such as beta – HPV types are linked with skin carcinogenesis. However, their direct role in the development of cancer, especially if combined with other risk factors synergy, such as UV irradiation, will be demonstrated. Continue reading
