Summary

POPS is a longitudinal cohort study which collects oral rinse and gargle samples every six months to test for HPV DNA. The study includes 600 HIV-infected and 400 HIV-uninfected individuals who are part of the MACS and WIHS studies. This is one of the first studies to explore oral HPV natural history, the effect of HIV on this natural history, and risk factors for persistent HPV infection.
