HPV and Chlamydia trachomatis co‐detection in young asymptomatic women from high incidence area for cervical cancer
Mon, 18 Aug 2014 07:35:25 +0100 | Journal of Medical Virology
In this study, the use of a high sensitive molecular technique exhibited higher analytical sensitivity than the referred assays for the diagnosis of Chlamydia trachomatis and HPV co‐infection in asymptomatic females, leading to reduction of the potential to identify incorrectly the infection status. An active screening for timely treatment of Chlamydia trachomatis infection is suggested in young females to evaluate a possible decrease in incidence of pre‐cancer intraepithelial lesions. J. Med.

(Boston University Medical Center) Probing deeper into the complex decisions that parents and providers face regarding the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine, researchers found that though both parties appreciated importance of the HPV vaccine, their personal assumptions surrounding timing of administration relative to onset of sexual activity resulted in decreased vaccination rates.

Compliance with Age at Initiation of Human Papillomavirus Vaccine Series by Socioeconomic Status, Race/Ethnicity, and Health Insurance Coverage Among 13-17 Year-Old Females Who Received at Least One HPV Vaccine Shot: United States, 2011
Thu, 14 Aug 2014 16:02:12 +0100 | Annals of Epidemiology
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine has been shown to prevent cervical cancer. Numerous studies have examined factors associated with HPV vaccine series initiation, but little is known about factors associated with age of initiation of HPV vaccine. Using cross-sectional data from the 2011 National Immunization Survey-Teen, this study examined the relationship between Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices' recommended age at initiation of the HPV vaccine series and socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, and health insurance among 13-17 year-old females who received at least one HPV vaccine shot (n=5,965).

HPV-related Squamous Neoplasia of the Lower Anogenital Tract: An Update and Review of Recent Guidelines
Wed, 13 Aug 2014 00:54:47 +0100 | Advances in Anatomic Pathology
Squamous cell carcinomas of the lower anogenital tract that are related to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection represent a significant disease burden worldwide. The diagnosis and management of their noninvasive precursors has been the subject of extensive study and debate over several decades, accompanied by an evolving understanding of HPV biology. Recent new consensus recommendations for the pathologic diagnosis of these precursor lesions were published in 2012, the result of the Lower Anogenital Squamous Terminology project cosponsored by the College of American Pathologists and the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology. Most salient among the new guidelines are the recommendation to switch to a 2-tiered nomenclature (high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion and low-...
