Human papillomaviruses vaccination: Vaccine intentions of parents of children aged 10  to 11s in Normandy schools after an information campaign during the 2015-2016 school year.

This study assessed the knowledge of parents from Normandy about this vaccine and measured the impact of an information campaign on their intent to have their children vaccinated. METHODS: Parents from Normandy with children in sixth-grade class, aged 10 to 11, during the 2015-2016 school year were included. The secondary schools were selected in collaboration with academic institutions. The intent to have their child vaccinated was measured with a questionnaire distributed to children in April 2016 and collected from May to June 2016 by school nurses. RESULTS: Among the 16 selected secondary schools, 1428 questionnaires were distributed and 864 (60.5 %) were collected regardless of the gender of the child.

Human papillomavirus (HPV)-induced cervical cancer is a major health issue among women from the poorly/under-developed sectors of the world. It accounts for a high-mortality rate because of its late diagnosis and poor prognosis.

Thus, manipulation of these genes represents the most successful form of cervical cancer therapy. In the present article, information on structural, functional, and clinical dimensions of E6 and E7 activity ha...

Identifying risk factors for human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in the post-vaccination era among men is necessary for the design of evidence-based interventions to prevent HPV-related cancers. No previous studies have examined both individual- and partner-level (sexual networking) factors associated with HPV in men after vaccine introduction. The study aim was to determine individual- and partner-level factors associated with HPV infection (>1 HPV type and HPV16/18) in vaccinated and unvaccinated men.
