Dolphine Oda, BDS, MSLecture
This live webinar is offered in participation with Oregon Health Sciences University and the University of British Columbia.
This course covers human papillomaviruses (HPV) types and their potential for converting oral and oropharyngeal epithelium into squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The course will focus on comparing the clinical presentation and prognosis of HPV-associated oral SCC to that of tobacco-associated oral SCC. Over the course of this three-hour talk, we will discuss the pathogenesis of HPV in producing both benign and malignant oral diseases. In addition, this talk will address the life cycle of the virus and the effect of immunization on the variant HPV-associated cancer. The attendee will leave this course with up-to-date knowledge of HPV in general and specifically how it affects the mouth.
As a result of attending this course, you will be able to:
- Understand the prevalence of oral HPV in the general population
- Learn about the life cycle of the virus and how it transforms epithelial cells
- Differentiate between low-risk and high-risk HPV types
- Understand the role of HPV in oral SCC
- Differentiate between the clinical presentation of HPV & tobacco-associated oral SCC
