Biopsy samples from one hundred and two patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix and tissues from twelve healthy normal cervical tissues (post hysterectomy) were examined for HSV-type 2 and HPV-11 DNA sequences by molecular hybridization technique. In the carcinoma tissue extracts 53% contained HSV-2 DNA, 27% -HSV-1-DNA and 36% showed HPV-11 gene sequences while 5.7% were found to contain both HPV and HSV-2 DNA. Biopsies from healthy cervix were completely negative for HSV-2 and HPV-11 DNA sequences.
