Eight of the 11 patients received CHOP-like regimen and CR was reached in 42% of the patients, with a median survival of 6 months. One of the three patients receiving no cytotoxic therapy also had CR, which may have occurred as result of HAART. Only two patients survived beyond a year, and both had a CR after cytotoxic therapy or occurring along with antiretroviral therapy. 273 Currently, no definite treatment recommendations can be made due to lack of sufficient data. 271 HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS HPV is a virus in the papovavirus family.
