Young men unaware of risks of HPV infection and need for HPV vaccination
(Rutgers University) Young sexual minority men -- including those who are gay, bisexual, queer or straight-identified men who have sex with men -- do not fully understand their risk for human papillomavirus (HPV) due to a lack of information from health care providers, according to Rutgers researchers.
AbstractPurposeTo describe knowledge about human papillomavirus (HPV), HPV-related care behavior, and advocacy intent (e.g., vaccine recommendation and willingness to become an advocate for vaccination) and to investigate associations between knowledge, HPV-related care behavior, and advocacy intent among HPV-related cancer survivors.MethodsA cross-sectional online survey was offered through Qualtrics to HPV-related cancer survivors who were either volunteers at a cancer center or patients of survivorship clinics.ResultsA total of 200 survivors responded. Only 33.2% of respondents reported knowing their cancer was HP...
AbstractBackgroundFunctional somatic syndrome (FSS) is a disorder characterized by clusters of medically unexplained symptoms. Some women suffer from persistent FSS after human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination. However, a causal relationship has not been established, and the pathophysiology of FSS remains elusive. Here, we aimed to identify the brain regions showing altered cerebral metabolism and neuroinflammation in patients with FSS and to correlate the measures of positron emission tomography (PET) with clinical data. Twelve women diagnosed with FSS following HPV vaccination (FSS group) underwent both [18F]FDG-PET to m...

The aim of the study was to determine whether supplementing a bundled recommendation (recommendation for all 11- to 12-year-old platform vaccines) with tailored messaging that addressed one versus all parental concerns improved human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination intent among mothers.
Conclusion: Our study demonstrated an absence of clear association between HPV vaccines and autoimmune and other rare diseases. The review also highlights the need for more systematic collaborations to monitor rare safety adverse events.
High-grade neuroendocrine carcinomas (HGNEC) of the cervix are rare and carry an extremely poor prognosis. Fortunately, there have been recent advances in our molecular understanding of these carcinomas and some advances offer novel therapeutic options. The vast majority of HGNEC of the cervix are associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) and would be prevented by currently available vaccines. TP53 mutations are variably identified and likely drive a second pathway, one unrelated to high-risk HPV.
AbstractWe assessed the association of state legislation with adolescent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination rates in states that legislated information dissemination or administration of HPV vaccination. Using insurance claims, we calculated monthly HPV vaccination rates (November 2009–December 2017) among adolescents in states that passed HPV vaccinat ion legislation during that period: Missouri (July 2010), Kentucky (February 2012), Indiana (March 2013), Oregon (June 2013). We used segmented regression to estimate levels and trends of HPV vaccination rates, comparing pre-legislation to post-legislation se...
The objectives of this study were to investigate the incidence and HPV genotypes in tumours of all patients diagnosed with oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) during an 18-year period in Eastern Denmark.
