It would be necessary to evaluate whether the nine-valence vaccine also protects against other non-HPV oncogenic HPV types not included in this vaccine. Here, the prevalence of genotype 52 was higher than that found by other authors in national studies [36, 37]. Our results also do not coincide with the prevalence reported by the 2016 ICO-WHO report , which detected genotype 52 in 5.4% of HSIL and in 2.4% of cancerous lesions. This difference could be due to the high population of immigrants from East Africa that plays an important role in our health area; a very high prevalence of HPV 52 infection has been reported for this geographic area .
The greater level of protection by the new nine-valent HPV vaccine compared with that of the quadrivalent HPV vaccine is likely to have an observable impact, given our finding that these genotypes on their own (in the absence of infection by genotypes 16 or 18) remained significantly associated with high grade lesions, with an adjusted AFe of 72%. Thus, our results suggest that had the 121 patients who presented with at least one of these HPV genotypes (but not genotype 16 or 18) been vaccinated with the new nine-valent HPV vaccine, approximately 72% of the high-grade lesions present in these women would have been prevented. In other words, if all these 121 patients had been vaccinated, and the efficacy of the vaccination for these genotypes (31, 33, 45, 52, and 58) was 100%, approximately 87 high-grade lesions would have been prevented. Joura et al. showed an efficacy of 96.7% against high-grade lesions related with infection by HPV 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58 in their analysis of a cohort of 14,215 women aged 16 to 26 years . Monsonego et al. showed that a high proportion of high-grade cervical lesions (60.6% of genotyping assay-positive CIN2+) were associated with HPV types 31, 33, 45, 52, or 58 .
The peak time for acquiring infection for both women and men is shortly after becoming sexually active. HPV is sexually transmitted, but penetrative sex is not required for transmission. Skin-to-skin genital contact is a well-recognized mode of transmission. In 2018, approximately 311 000 women died from cervical cancer; more than 85% of these deaths occurring in low- and middle-income countries. There are more than 100 types of HPV, of which at least 14 are cancer-causing (also known as high risk type).
Information Centre on HPV and cancer, fact sheet 2016. 5.
This diagram shows the different groups of HPV types and the problems each group can cause. In conclusion, the HPV 9G DNA chip test is a useful tool to detect patient with ≥CIN 2, in addition to cytology test.
One advantage of using adjusted ORs is that derived from these adjusted OR, it is possible to estimate as a measure of impact, the adjusted attributable fraction in the total exposed together with its 95%CI. We think that our methodology can complement the information provided with other methodologies such as the one followed by the recently published study by Capra et al. , and that it could be useful for future reviews or meta-analysis. The description of high-risk HPV epidemiology is a key feature for the design of strategies to prevent cervical cancer, and the results from this study can be used with this purpose in future reviews and meta-analysis, in order to estimate the potential impact of vaccination by either the quadrivalent or nine-valent vaccine relative to other studies with similar aims. The new nine-valent HPV virus-like particle includes the four HPV types (6, 11, 16 and 18) present in the quadrivalent HPV vaccine, plus five additional oncogenic types (31, 33, 45, 52, and 58) and potentially increases the overall prevention of cervical cancer from around 70% to around 90% . Our study supports this increased efficacy.
But even in people whose HPV persists, the time from infection with a high-risk HPV type to the development of cancer is generally measured in years. In most people, HPV infections are transient, since the infected cells are shed from the body naturally. In a minority of people, though, the HPV persists, and if the persistent HPV is type 16 or 18, there is a marked increase in the risk of developing genital, anal, or oral cancer (depending on where the infection is located). Patients at any age who have signs or symptoms suggestive of cervical cancer should have a co-test (HPV and LBC).
However, studies evaluating the category HSIL compared to biopsy as gold standard support a very high probability of an accurate diagnosis [47, 51]. The primary variables included date of birth, country of birth, patient’s VPH vaccine status, Pap smear result, and determination of HPV genotype by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay.
The most frequent viral types are HPV 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 45, 52 and 58. However, there are differences of specific type prevalences according to the region analysed.
Accessed at www.cdc/std/HPV/STDFact-HPV.htm on September 28, 2017. HPV is a virus that can cause cervix cell changes.
In contrast, HPV 16 and 18 were the most common genotypes detected in a sample of 2309 cervical cancer patients in western China, followed by HPV 58, 53, and 33 . Thus, even within the same country, there might be regional variations.
This variability may reflect differences in geographic, ethnic, socio-cultural, and religious practices of the region. In a recent study in the USA found that HPV 16 was less prevalent in Hispanic and Black women compared to White women . In the ATHENA trial conducted in the USA on a large screening population, HPV 16 was reported as the most commonly associated hrHPV genotype with high-grade cervical lesions.
Cervical cancer is the most common cancer linked to HPV in women. Nearly all cervical cancers are caused by HPV. HPV infection is very common.
Consider referral for the appropriate investigations to exclude genital tract malignancy. An intermediate risk result means an HPV infection (not 16/18) was detected.
While major successes have been reported in preventing cervical cancer caused by HPV16 and HPV18, it is important that doctors and researchers continue these efforts into related, but unique strains. Expanding our understanding and the therapeutic toolbox to include other species 7 and 9 HPVs will likely help in achieving eradication like has been observed for small pox or poliovirus. These results from the HPV Research Group emphasize that making research collaborative only increases the productivity of science and increases its value to human health. As another option, the provider may suggest testing specifically for HPV-16 or both -16 and -18 (the 2 types that are most likely to cause cervical cancer).
Cervical cancer is a cancer that develops in a woman's cervix. It is the second most common cancer experienced by women worldwide. The most common cause of cervical cancer is the human papillomavirus (HPV). Regular cervical screening tests are vital to check for the presence of HPV.
HPV 31 has an odds ratio of 3.4 of developing invasive cervical cancer. Thus, HPV type virulence is another consideration when vaccination and screening guidelines are addressed .
But sometimes, the infection doesn’t go away. Chronic, or long-lasting infection, especially when it’s caused by certain high-risk HPV types, can cause cancer over time. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). HPV is a different virus than HIV and HSV (herpes). 79 million Americans, most in their late teens and early 20s, are infected with HPV.
Paraffin tissue blocks were retrieved on all cases except those with insufficient residual tissue. Cases were classified based on morphologic criteria for cervical neoplasia according to the World Health Organization (WHO) Classification of Tumors of Uterine Cervix . Demographic and pathological data including age, nationality, pathological diagnosis and tumor-related histological features where applicable (histological subtype, tumor size, grade, stage) were all documented. Knowledge of the specific hrHPV subtypes in the UAE population would not only help guide the formulation of proper cancer screening recommendations, but also assist in directing vaccination program strategies should the infection patterns deviate from the known national/regional/ and international epidemiologic data.
The human papillomavirus (HPV) test detects the presence of the human papillomavirus, a virus that can lead to the development of genital warts, abnormal cervical cells or cervical cancer. HPV vaccination does not replace cervical cancer screening. In countries where HPV vaccine is introduced, screening programmes may still need to be developed or strengthened. Some countries have started to vaccinate boys as the vaccination prevents genital cancers in males as well as females, and two available vaccines also prevent genital warts in males and females.
Gardasil vaccine targets HPV 6, 11, 16, and 18 with an aim to reduce the incidence of genital condylomas caused by HPV 6, 11 and cervical/vaginal/vulvar intraepithelial neoplasias (CINs, VAINs, VIN) and carcinomas caused by the most frequently implicated subtypes of hrHPV 16, 18. Cervarix is administered in the UAE for the prevention of cervical carcinoma that targets HPV 16 and 18 [14, 15].
If you are pregnant and have HPV, you can get genital warts or develop abnormal cell changes on your cervix. Abnormal cell changes can be found with routine cervical cancer screening. You should get routine cervical cancer screening even when you are pregnant. Health problems related to HPV include genital warts and cervical cancer.
Cancer is easiest to treat when it’s found early – while it’s small and before it has spread. Some cancer screening tests can find early cell changes caused by HPV, and these changes can be treated before they even become cancer. Vaccines are approved for use in males and females. They can only be used to prevent HPV infection – they don’t help treat an existing infection.
Eight cases had two-viral subtype infections and 4 cases had 3 subtype infections. Multi-viral HPV infection was limited to hrHPV 16, 18, 31 & 33 subtypes. Regular screening can prevent 9 out of 10 cervical cancers. Most women diagnosed with cervical cancer have not had regular cervical screening tests. Even if you have had the HPV vaccine (either before or after becoming sexually active), you need to continue to have regular cervical screening tests every five years because the HPV vaccine only protects you from 70-90% of cervical cancers.
The finding ought to be ratified by larger, multicenter studies to get an actual overall incidence of the HPV subtypes in the country. The current study addressed cases that presented with HSIL or higher lesions. Thus, data on HPV type prevalence might be skewed toward the more aggressive lesions.
These tests are only recommended for screening in women aged 30 years and older. HPV tests are not recommended to screen men, adolescents, or women under the age of 30 years. Vaccination is not recommended for everyone older than age 26 years. However, some adults age 27 through 45 years who are not already vaccinated may decide to get the HPV vaccine after speaking with their healthcare provider about their risk for new HPV infections and the possible benefits of vaccination.
If signs of cervical cancer are present, treatment options for invasive cancer include surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Women who are sexually active should be screened for abnormal cervical cells and pre-cancerous lesions, starting from 30 years of age.
Regarding the percentages of infection by high-risk HPV genotypes that are not targeted by either the quadrivalent or nine-valent HPV vaccine, we found that 11.60% of subjects were infected by genotype 51, 9.24% by genotype 56, 7.73% by genotype 39, 4.71% by genotype 59, 2.86% by genotype 35, and 2.19% by genotype 68 (Table 2). The Cervical Screening Test began on 1 December 2017, replacing the Pap smear test. The new test screens for the presence of the human papillomavirus (HPV) and looks for HPV types 16 and 18 and other high-risk for types for women aged 25-74 years of age. Phylogenetic tree showing genetic similarities between 118 papillomavirus types. Viruses are first grouped by genus (e.g. alpha- or delta-papillomavirus) and then by species number (e.g. species 2, 6).

A false-negative test result means you really do have an HPV infection, but the test indicates that you don't. This might cause a delay in appropriate follow-up tests or procedures. False-positive. A false-positive test result indicates that you have a high-risk type of HPV when you really don't.
In contrast, the data published by Castellsagué et al. and Delgado et al. [30, 40] regarding the prevalence of HPV 52 are similar to those obtained in our study. Castellsagué et al. found that after HPV 16, genotype 52 was the most prevalent, and Delgado et al. reported the prevalence for genotype 52 as 12%. Our results show that in the absence of infection with HPV genotypes 16 or 18, the greater level of protection provided by the new nine-valent HPV vaccine compared with that provided by the quadrivalent HPV vaccine is likely to have a measurable impact.
Visible genital warts can be removed with prescribed medicines. They can also be treated by a health care provider.
A single low-risk genotype (6, 11, 42, 43 or 44) was detected in 33.61% of the women (95% CI, 29.73–37.49), and a single likely high-risk genotype was detected in 25.88% (95% CI, 22.28–29.49). A single high-risk genotype was detected in 45.04% of participants (95% CI, 40.96–49.12), and two high-risk genotypes were detected in the 20.50% (Additional file 1). The most common multiple infections were by genotype 16 (19.33%), 52 (12.94%), or 51(9.24%) (Table 1).
There are hundreds of HPV strains, yet a very small subset is known to cause cervical carcinomas. In fact, in the USA 70% of HPV positive cervical cancers are caused by HPV16 or HPV18 strains. Due to this overwhelming majority, most research to date has focused on HPV16 and HPV18 resulting in a number of highly effective vaccines. With these clinical successes, the question remains – which non-HPV16/18 strains contribute to developing cervical carcinoma in the other 20% of patients? The HPV Research Group (a collaborative effort amongst Fred Hutch and University of Washington Laboratories) has begun to answer this question, and understand why these variant strains are also oncogenic.
The progression from high-grade changes to cancer takes between one and 30 years with an average of 10 years. This is why it is important to have regular cervical screening tests and have abnormal changes picked up as early as possible. Types 6 & 11 are known to cause up to 90% of genital warts. If abnormal or cancerous cells are detected from further investigation after cervical screening, your doctor will refer you to a specialist, usually a gynaecologist who specialises in cancer treatment. Cervical cancer, especially in the early stages, may not have any obvious symptoms.
A total of 113 patients (9.75%) were infected with multiple HPV genotypes. The numbers and percentages of HR-HPV (+), HPV-16/18 (+), and non-16/18 HR-HPV (+) for each age group of patients is summarized in Table 1 . In cases of multiple infections, patients were classified into to the group with the higher risk for its constituents. For example, a case with both HPV-16 (+) and HPV-35 (+) was classified into the HPV-16/18 (+) group.
However, when scientists are able to study uncommon biology nature’s diversity can be leveraged for our understanding. This is the case for human papilloma virus (HPV).
The findings are in keeping with the current report showing hrHPV 18 as a less frequent hrHPV type in the UAE population . Similarly, Krishnan and Thomas reported HPV 16 to be the most common HPV type in cases with abnormal Pap smear . Likewise, hrHPV 18 was not the second most frequent type. The following hrHPV types (51, 31, 66, 56 and 59) were reported by all these authors .
