Authors: Kardani K, Basimi P, Fekri M, Bolhassani A Abstract INTRODUCTION: The sexually transmitted infections (STIs) caused by viruses including human T cell leukemia virus type-1 (HTLV-1), human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1), human simplex virus-2 (HSV-2), hepatitis C virus (HCV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and human papillomavirus (HPV) are major public health issues. These infections can cause cancer or result in long-term health problems. Due to high prevalence of STIs, a safe and effective vaccine is required to overcome these fatal viruses. AREAS COVERED: This review includes a comprehensive overview of...

CONCLUSIONS: Parents are comfortable having discussions about HPV and the vaccine in the dental setting, especially with dentists. This may represent an additional setting where strong recommendations increase vaccine uptake. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Our findings emphasize an opportunity for the dental care team to improve the patient perspective on the role of dental care providers in HPV prevention. Continuing dental education can increase providers' knowledge, comfort, and confidence in discussing HPV with parents. Parents perceiving provider comfort and confidence might be more comfortable with HPV conversations. Tr...

AbstractGenital human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted virus in the United States and etiologically linked to several types of cancers including the cervix, vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and oropharynges. Evidence indicates certain types of HPV-associated cancers disproportionally affect Latinos in the United States. This qualitative study sought to explore Latina mothers ’ perceptions and understanding of HPV infection, HPV-associated cancers, and the HPV vaccination for their adolescent sons and daughters. Twenty-two individual, face-to-face interviews were conducted in 2018–2019 wit...

AbstractThis systematic review provided synthesized evidence regarding the effectiveness of the interventions promoting the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination in college-aged population. The HPV infection is the most prevailing sexually transmitted disease. Despite the availability and effectiveness of the 9-Valent HPV vaccine, the vaccine coverage among young adults remained low. In witness to the increasing burden of HPV-related infections and cancers, research focused on the vaccination interventions should be conducted to determine the effectiveness of the vaccination strategy and address the gap. The search was co...

Conclusions This analysis did not identify any partner discordances associated with HRAHPV. Because HPV infection can persist for years, sexual mixing patterns with early partners might be more relevant than the most recent sex partner. Prevalence of HRAHPV was high and could be preventable by preexposure vaccination, as recommended for everyone through age 26 years including MSM and TGW.
