Gender-neutral HPV vaccination

Peter Baker is Campaign Director for HPV Action, a collaborative partnership of patient and professional organisations that are working together to achieve gender-neutral (both boys and girls) vaccination for the human papilloma virus (HPV). He presents a clear argument for introducing a gender-neutral vaccination programme in the UK, and highlights the potential public health benefits, long term savings in treatment and care and reduction in human suffering that would result.

Researchers develop new model to study why some HPV infections go away and others progress

For people infected with the human papilloma virus (HPV), the likelihood of clearing the infection and avoiding HPV-related cancer may depend less on the body's disease-fighting arsenal than has been generally assumed. A new study finds that the body's ability to defeat the virus may be largely due to unpredictable division patterns in HPV-infected stem cells, rather than the strength of the person's immune response.

A barrier to human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination has been the concern that it may promote unsafe sexual activity, but a new study of adolescent girls finds that HPV vaccination was not associated with increases in sexually transmitted infections (STIs), according to an article published online by JAMA Internal Medicine.

People with HIV who experienced extensive immune deficiency or who used early antiretroviral drugs before the advent of combination highly-active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in the mid-90s may be at greater risk for developing anal cancer, according to a retrospective analysis published in the January 28 edition of AIDS.

A CDC recommendation report issued by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices released late this summer calls for a better understanding of anal cancer development and screening among a population at high risk—men who have sex with men (MSM). Although there’s still uncertainty about the best way to screen for and treat anal cancer, here’s what we know right now about who gets it, and what to look out for if you’re worried.

Experiments in mice and in humans have indicated that the HIV drug maraviroc (Celsentri/Selzentry) could be used to prevent the spread of metastases (secondary caners) from prostate and other cancers. Experiments in mice showed a 60% reduction in metastases in animals treated with maraviroc.

Heterosexual transmission of HPV to male oral tract via oral/genital route indicated by partner data

A recent study claims to be the first to have established the association of oral infection in males with sexual behaviour, not just on the basis of their reported sexual behaviour, but through the collection of data from their partners.

HIV-infected adults are at a higher risk for developing heart attacks, kidney failure and cancer. But, contrary to what many had believed, the researchers say these illnesses are occurring at similar ages as adults who are not infected with HIV.

HIV-positive patients with lymphoma should no longer be excluded from receiving blood stem cell transplants as treatment

HIV-positive patients with lymphoma were previously excluded from receiving autologous blood stem cell transplants as treatment, because of concern that these patients’ compromised immune systems would have a higher risk of infection and poor graft function due to their need for HIV medications. Results from the clinical trial, presented at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) meetings, show the concern of additional risk is unfounded.
