To identify the predictive markers for spontaneous regression of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), we examined whether IgG antibody responses to common human papillomavirus (HPV) L1-capsids correlate with CIN regression. In a cohort study, a total of 116 Japanese women with CIN grade I/II were tested for cervical HPV DNA and serum IgG antibodies to HPV16/52/58/6 L1-capsids. Our data suggest that baseline IgG reactivities to HPV L1-capsids do not serve as a predictive marker of CIN regression, in contrast to histological CIN grades and HPV DNA status.
