The HPV vaccine is effective in preventing many HPV-associated diseases, however, vaccination rates suggest many remain unprotected. This study examined successful strategies used by physicians to improve HPV vaccination rates. Read More

    Human Papillomavirus Vaccine Dose Effectiveness Against Incident Genital Warts in a Cohort of Insured US Females.
    Am J Epidemiol 2017 Jun 21. Epub 2017 Jun 21.
    We examined effectiveness of HPV vaccination by dose number and interval against incident genital warts in a cohort of 64,517 females in the United States during 8/2006-9/2012. Eligible females were classified into 0, 1-dose, 2-dose < 6 months apart, 2-dose ≥6 months apart, and 3-dose groups and followed until genital wart diagnosis, loss to follow-up, or end of study. Propensity score weights were used to balance baseline differences across groups. Read More

    Oral and oropharyngeal papillomas are not associated with high-risk human papillomavirus infection.
    Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2017 Jun 21. Epub 2017 Jun 21.
    Department of Laryngology, School of Medicine in Katowice, Medical University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland.
    The role of different types of human papillomavirus (HPV) in the development of oral and oropharyngeal papillomas remains unclear. High-risk HPV (HR-HPV) was shown to be involved in the pathogenesis of significant proportion of squamous cell carcinomas of the oropharynx. In this study, we hypothesized that in some oropharyngeal papillomas, low-risk HPV (LR-HPV) and HR-HPV infection could co-exist, similar to what is observed in genital warts, and thus contribute to the elevated risk of malignancy.

    HPV entry into cells.
    Mutat Res 2017 Apr - Jun;772:13-22. Epub 2016 Sep 23.
    Department of Biological Sciences, Fordham University, Bronx, NY, USA. Electronic address:
    Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted virus responsible for the development of cervical cancer, anal cancer, head and throat cancers, as well as genital area warts. A major focus of current HPV research is on preventing the virus from entering a cell and transferring its genetic material to the nucleus, thus potentially preventing the development of cancer. Although the available HPV vaccines are extremely successful, approximately 15 additional cancer-causing HPVs have been identified that the vaccines do not protect against. Read More

    Dysplasia of Granulocytes in a Patient with HPV Disease, Recurrent Infections, and B Lymphopenia: A Novel Variant of WHIM Syndrome?
    Front Pediatr 2017 2;5:95. Epub 2017 May 2.
    Department of Medicine of Systems, University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy.
    WHIM syndrome is a condition in which affected persons have chronic peripheral neutropenia, lymphopenia, abnormal susceptibility to human papilloma virus infection, and myelokathexis. Myelokathexis refers to the retention of mature neutrophils in the bone marrow (BM), which accounts for degenerative changes and hypersegmentation. Most patients present heterozygous autosomal dominant mutations of the gene encoding CXCR4. Read More

    Laboratory for Reproductive Immunology, Hospital & Institute of Obstetrics and Gynecology, IBS, Shanghai Medical College, Fudan University.
    Human papillomavirus (HPV) infections are common and generally harmless, but persistent infections can bring health problems like cancer and genital warts. For the uninfected group, HPV vaccines provide safe and effective protection, but they're type-restricted and expensive. For those infected, so far there have been a handful of treatments for HPV-associated benign or malignant diseases, traditional Chinese medicine being one of them. Read More

    Prevalence of HPV in Adults Aged 18-69: United States, 2011-2014.
    NCHS Data Brief 2017 Apr(280):1-8

    As a worldwide very common sexually transmitted infection (STI), HPV causes millions of genital warts every year and is responsible for 5% of all cancers in men and women. With strong empirical evidence for both vaccine safety and efficacy, the HPV vaccines proved to protect against these HPV-related conditions over the last decade. But current HPV vaccination coverage is suboptimal in many countries. Read More

    Heat-Induced Editing of HPV Genes to Clear Mucocutaneous Warts?
    J Invest Dermatol 2017 Apr;137(4):796-797
    Dermatology and Academic Wound Healing, Division of Infection and Immunity, School of Medicine, College of Biomedical and Life Sciences, Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK. Electronic address:
    Hyperthermia increases expression of the antiviral cellular factors APOBEC3A and APOBEC3G and induces G-to-A or C-to-T mutations in human papilloma virus cervical cell lines and genital warts. This unexpected effect of heat treatment correlated with regression of genital warts in a subset of patients, including at distant sites, suggesting that this effect may be mediated in part by antiviral as well as immunological mechanisms.
