(Reuters Health) – A new study adds to earlier evidence that getting vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV) does not lead girls to be less careful about sex.
CONCLUSION: In cases of male fertility disorders a microbiological clarification is recommended. Further studies on the effect of STI on male fertility in larger collectives are necessary, particularly for Caucasian populations. The utilization of existing preventive measures, such as screening for Chlamydia in young women and HPV vaccination also for young males, should be intensively promoted.

HPV16 prevalence is lower in African American compared with Caucasian women with HIV and cervical precancer, independent of immune status. Future studies to determine why these racial differences exist are warranted, and whether there are similar associations between race and invasive cervical cancer in women with HIV. Further, HPV types not covered by quadrivalent and bivalent vaccines may play an especially important role in cervical precancer among HIV-positive African American women, a possible advantage to using nonavalent HPV vaccine in this population.
— The HPV vaccine protects against human papillomavirus, which has been shown to cause cancer in males and females, the American Cancer Society says.

Anogenital warts are the second most common sexually transmitted infection diagnosed in sexual health services in England. About 90% of genital warts are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6 or 11, and…
Cytological examination for the early detection of cervical cancer (CCS) has been available in Germany since 1971. Women over the age of 20 are entitled to a Pap smear every year; however, thus far an organized screening program and personal invitations have been missing.The incidence rate of cervical carcinoma declined dramatically in the decades following the introduction of CCS, but the incidence rate has stagnated in recent years. The cause of cervical cancer is a persistent infection with high-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV tests have been approved by the American Food and Dr…

Cancer immunoinformatics have new directions towards in vaccine design from predicted potential epitope candidates, able to stimulate a correct cellular or humoral immune responses have been reported. It employed to accomplish an advanced vaccine design through Reverse vaccinology by replacing the whole organisms. In this review, computational tools play an essential role in evaluating multiple proteomes to identify and select the potential targeted epitopes or combinations of distinct epitopes candidates may afford a rationale design competent towards obtaining suitable cytotoxic T lymphocytes (T cell) o…

Expression of the recombinant strains was evaluated by Western blot analysis. Female mice of strain C57BL/6 were immunized orally with recombinant lactococci expressing inducible E6 oncoprotein and the antigen-specific an…
