4 in 10 U.S. Adults Under 60 Carry HPV

In other words, while new HPV estimates show preventably high numbers (specifically that one in five American adults has high-risk HPV), it definitely doesn't have to be that way.

The study also showed evidence that the vaccine protects against three other high-risk HPV genotypes involved in the development of cervical cancer.

The study assessing the most common sexually transmitted infection came to some unnerving conclusions.

Although most HPV infections go away on their own, there's still plenty of room for concern.

During a recent two-year period, nearly 23 percent of USA adults ages 18 to 59 had a type of genital human papillomavirus (HPV) that put them at high risk of certain cancers, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report published Thursday. Some type of HPV can cause genital warts and are considered low risk with a small chance for causing cancer.

"We tend to overlook the fact that 20 percent of us are carrying the virus that can cause cancer". Geraldine McQuillan, a senior infectious disease epidemiologist with the CDC and the lead author of the report, said researchers were surprised to see the number of adults who had high-risk genital HPV.

"The vaccine is a part of cancer prevention", Electra Paskett, a cancer control researcher at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, confirmed. Reviewing the data for sexually active women ages 14 to 24, women who'd received the vaccine had a 2.1 percent infection rate compared to a rate of 16.9 percent for those who were unvaccinated.

The survey was conducted by analyzing samples of more than 20,000 women, which makes this study one of the largest ever conducted in Scottland's history regarding the impact of a vaccine. The HPV vaccine is recommended for children ages 11 to 12 years old because it is most effective if given before a person becomes sexually active.

Dr Pollock added: "The very high uptake of the HPV vaccine is strongly associated with these massive reductions in high-risk HPV types that are known to cause approximately 90% of cervical cancer in Scottish women".

Neck and head cancer are some of the implications of HPV, and some experts say that 70 percent of all head and neck cancers are caused by HPV, most likely spread through oral sex. The program is newer for boys, however, and we expect this rate to increase over time. "This vaccine has the potential to prevent 30,000 cases of cancer each year and is woefully underused". Some people still think vaccination encourages youth to become promiscuous. The report specifically looked at adults who didn't receive recommendations to get the HPV vaccine.

She explains that a possible solution is to introduce the vaccine to the population in a different way.
