HIV-positive gay men's knowledge and perceptions of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and HPV vaccination: A qualitative study.

PLoS One 2018 29;13(11):e0207953. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Toronto General Hospital, Toronto, Canada.

The human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection worldwide. Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (GBM) living with HIV are disproportionately impacted by HPV-associated anal cancer, with rates about 100-fold that of the general population. Fortunately, HPV vaccination has proven efficacy in preventing both anogenital warts (condyloma) in males and anal pre-cancers (anal intraepithelial neoplasia; AIN) in GBM up to the age of 26.

Early syphilis can rarely cause erythema multiforme-type eruptions as well as triggering erythema multiforme (EM). EM-like lesions in secondary syphilis are characterized by clinical features of EM and laboratory tests consistent with secondary syphilis and the skin histology shows predominantly a plasma cell infiltrate with the presence of treponemes. When EM is triggered by early syphilis, the skin histology shows mixed inflammatory cells usually in the absence of treponemes in the skin lesion. Read More

The impact of 10 years of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination in Australia: what additional disease burden will a nonavalent vaccine prevent?

Euro Surveill 2018 Oct;23(41)

Robinson Research Institute and Adelaide Medical School, University of Adelaide, North Adelaide, Australia.

Background: A National human papilloma virus (HPV) Vaccination Programme for the prevention of HPV infection and associated disease using the quadrivalent HPV vaccine (4vHPV) has been funded and implemented in Australia since 2007, initially for girls only and extended to boys in 2013, with uptake rates among the highest observed worldwide.

Aim: We report on the impact of this national programme on HPV prevalence and associated disease burden and estimate the potential impact of adopting a nonavalent HPV (9vHPV) vaccine.

Methods: We performed a non-systematic literature review of studies measuring the burden of HPV-associated disease and infection in Australia before and after introduction of HPV vaccination. Read More

[HPV vaccination in boys and men : update and recommendations].

Rev Med Brux 2018;39(4):352-358

High-risk oncogenic HPVs (HR-HPV) are associated in men with pre-cancerous anal dysplasia, oropharyngeal, anal and penile cancer. Anogenital warts are induced by low-risk HPVs. These manifestations are increasing among men, and especially in some high-risk groups as men who have sex with men (MSM). Read More

Lidocaine-induced potentiation of thermal damage in skin and carcinoma cells.

Lasers Surg Med 2018 Oct 15. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

Objective: Lidocaine acts as a local anesthetic by blocking transmembrane sodium channel permeability, but also induces the synthesis of heat shock proteins and sensitizes cells to hyperthermia. A previous study reported two cases of deep focal skin ulceration at points corresponding to depot local lidocaine injection sites after treatment with non-ablative fractional resurfacing and it was hypothesized that lidocaine had focally sensitized keratinocytes to the thermal damage of laser treatment. The objective of this study was to investigate whether lidocaine potentiates hyperthermia damage to both normal and cancerous skin cells using an in vitro model. Read More
