    [Ten years of human papilloma virus vaccination. From dermatology to oncology via the infectious diseases department].
    An Pediatr (Barc) 2018 Feb 7. Epub 2018 Feb 7.
    Asociación Española de Vacunología, Barcelona, España. Electronic address:
    Human papilloma virus (HPV) was first identified in dermatology, and it was subsequently demonstrated that is was required for the development of uterine cervical cancer and other tumours, after a persistent infection by any of its oncogenic genotypes. Ten years ago, the most common infections and cancers associated with HPV could be prevented by immunisation with 2vaccines, one bivalent, and another tetravalent, and having just marketed a nonavalent one. During the period 2007-2008, the HPV vaccine was included in the Autonomous Communities vaccination calendar, and it is the second vaccine, after that of Hepatitis B, that prevents cancer. Read More

    [Evaluation of sensitization to Der p 1 and Der p 2 in a pediatric population of the North of Portugal].
    An Pediatr (Barc) 2017 Dec 28. Epub 2017 Dec 28.
    Departamento de Pediatría, Centro Hospitalar de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro (CHTMAD), Vila Real, Portugal.
    Introduction: In Portugal, data on the role of Der p 1 and Der p 2 in patients with house dust mite (HDM) allergy are scarce. Allergen-specific immunotherapy (sIT) is the only treatment that improves symptoms, reduces the need for pharmacological therapy and modifies the natural history of the disease. With this study, the authors aim to understand the local epidemiology and to clarify if the molecular assay of major allergens is advantageous in deciding and/or modifying the decision to initiate sIT in children with clinical indication which are sensitized to Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus.
