Study confirms efficacy of vaccine efficacy against papillomavirus viconfirma la de la vacuna contra el virus del papilloma en mujeres adult

The vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV) is also effective in adult women, according to research published in the British Journal of Cancer. The study was prepared by professionals in the Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO) and the Institut de Bellvitge Biomedical Recercadas (IDIBELL).

The research is based on the reaction of 3819 women from various countries around the world for the HPV vaccine. The study coordinator, Xavier Castellsague, told Efe that, until now, had demonstrated the efficacy of the vaccine in females aged 9 to 26, but not after that age. "What the study shows that it is also valid and effective for women between 26 and 45 years," he said Castellsague, who also noted that the vaccine is beneficial for any woman is sexually active age. "There are risks that can not be overcome only with a condom, such as genital warts. The vaccine is 100% prevention," he added.

HPV is responsible for all cancers and genital warts, and this tumor is the second leading cause of cancer death in women behind breast cancer. Are diagnosed each year 500,000 cases worldwide, half of which cause the death of the patient, and Spain are produced each year more than 2,100 cases of this cancer and 700 deaths. Are currently developing new generations of vaccines that protect against a wide variety of viruses.
