Posted 29 October 2010 - 04:36 AM
I have got some issues about HeLa cells. I have a friend who has been working with HeLa cells for 2 years and It has no problem at all.Unfortunately, last month she has got a bad cold. At that time, she still did experiment with HeLa cells. One month later, she was diagnosed that she has a condyloma (causing by HPV-virus)at her genitalia. I am so surprise because she is kind of never has sex. So the reason that she recieved this virus from her partner. it never! How do you think is it possible that HPV-virus in HeLa cells can causing the disease in researcher? How can we prevent from this risky?
