HPV Can Cause Tumors in the Ear; CBCD Reviews the Medical Evidence

Many people think that HPV can cause genital warts or cervical cancer only. However, HPV can also cause cancer in the middle-ear. As Dr. Zhou and colleagues wrote, “High-risk HPV has been identified in middle ear carcinomas.” In addition “There is growing evidence to support the association of HPV with the pathogenesis (development) of squamous papillomas (a type of benign tumor similar to a genital wart).” (1) This includes squamous papilloma of the middle-ear. Dr. Zhou and colleagues are from the Department of Otolaryngology, The First Affiliated Hospital, Nanjing Medical University, in Nanjing, China.
The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) therefore recommends that individuals infected with HPV take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR formula is effective against the HPV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the HPV…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (2) The study authors also wrote that “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (2)
Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.
CancerResearch.org.uk says that “Most cancers of the ear are squamous cell carcinomas.” Symptoms of these tumors include “a discharge from the ear which may be blood stained. Other symptoms include hearing loss and earache. Occasionally people cannot move their face on the side of the affected ear.” (3)
Treatments for HPV associated ear cancer include surgery and radiation therapy. “The type and amount of surgery you need depends on where the cancer is in your ear. And whether it has spread into any of the surrounding tissues, or into nearby structures, such as the bone … surgery may involve having some or all of the following removed: the ear canal, part or all of the temporal bone, the middle ear, and the inner ear.” (3)
Dr. Tsai wrote in another study that “The high prevalence of high-risk-type HPV (types 16 and 18) in carcinomas of the middle ear suggests that viral infection may be an important etiologic component (or cause) in the carcinogenic process (that is, the development of cancer).” (4) Dr. Tsai and colleagues are from the Department of Otolaryngology, National Cheng Kung University Medical College in Tainan, Taiwan.
What Treatments are Available that Target HPV?
“There are no drugs approved against the HPV. Current treatments include procedures, such as cryotherapy, conization, and the Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP). These procedures use liquid nitrogen, a surgical knife (scalpel), a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, or electrical current to remove the abnormal growths caused by the HPV. These growths include cells that harbor the active virus. The procedures do not target cells with the latent virus. Since they do not remove the latent virus, these procedures only produce a temporary remission.” (2) In contrast, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR were designed to target the latent HPV.
