Boys Still Aren ’t Getting the HPV Vaccine As Much As Girls, Study Says

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 18:03:26 +0100

When the HPV vaccine first hit the U.S. market in 2006, it was approved only for girls. Boys got the green light three years later — but a new study suggests there’s still a gender gap in vaccination rates. The HPV vaccine — administered in either two or three doses — protects against human papillomavirus, a common sexually transmitted disease that can lead to cervical, vaginal, anal, penile, mouth and throat cancers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all children get the vaccine when they’re 11 or 12 years old, though it’s approved for use in people up to age 26. Despite that recommendation, however, new research from Johns Hopkins Hospital says that as of 2016, just 65% of girls and 56% of boys had started the vaccin...

Why Flu Outbreaks Have Been the Worst in Nearly a Decade

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 15:43:20 +0100

The only thing worse than getting the flu is catching it after you’ve gotten a flu shot. It’s been a terrible year for outbreaks — the worst in almost a decade. Contributing to that is the high failure rate of this year’s vaccine. The current shot is just 25 percent effective against the H3N2 virus, this season’s most-often-identified strain by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The experts say, with enough time and money, they can do a lot better. “There has to be a wholesale change to how we make the flu vaccine,” said Amesh Adalja, senior scholar at Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. “We’re always setting ourselves up for vaccine mismatch and failures and the like because of the lead time in how long it takes the ...

Men who perform oral sex on women 'more at risk of mouth and throat cancers'

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 17:00:00 +0100

Conclusion This study uses a large amount of national data to give us an idea about which groups of people have the greatest risk of carrying potentially cancer-causing oral HPV . But while oral HPV may increase people's risk of mouth and throat cancers, the actual number who would go on to develop cancer is extremely small. This study has limitations, which are worth bearing in mind: It only looked at whether people had oral HPV at a single point in time. This makes it difficult to know at what point they became infected and how much this could be down to other risk factors such as smoking, oral sex and number of partners. The researchers were only able to make predictions about likelihood of going on to develop cancer once infected. We cannot put a definite number to this risk. The st...
