How does chronic stress influence the persistence of oncogenic viruses or bacteria in otherwise healthy adults?

Chronic stress has significant suppressive impact on the immune system and would influence the risk of infection-associated cancers if high risk infections are allowed to persist. In general populations and healthy adult populations, this question has not been addressed. It would involve serial measurement of oral or anogenital human papillomavirus, or even helicobacter pylori.
