An immuno-enzymatic assay for Herpes Simplex Virus tumour associated antigen in gynecological oncology
The Auhtors studied the HSV-TAA （Herpes Simplex Virus Tumor Associated .Antigen) in patients affected by female genitale tract tumors, using the immunoenzymatic assay (ELISA). They found a positive frequence of the 65% in sera of patients affected by uterine cervical carcinoma and of the 80% in sera of patients affected by vulvar carcinoma.
