The article describes methods for the human papillomavirus (HPV) detection in tumor and adjacent (morphologically intact) tissues of patients with laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSSC) in terms of viral pathogenesis. Comparative evaluation of the principles and techniques for HPV detection was performed. Advantages and disadvantages of the HPV detection methods are described. Approaches for DNA and HPV oncoproteins E6-E7 identification are substantiated. The results of our research into the qualitative and quantitative detection of HPV in the tumor and adjacent tissues of patients with Lssc are described. The research was conducted using commercial test systems Amplisens HPV HR screen-titre-FL and Amplisens HPV HR genotype-FL. Based on these results we developed the algorithm of HPV detection in samples of tumor tissue of patients with Lssc. The need for typing HPV-positive tissue samples with low concentration of HPV DNA was discussed.
