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. The Authors suggest that this enzymatic method has a real value and propose its use in the early diagnosis of the female genital tract neoplasms.
