HPV Vaccine

The use of HPV vaccines has been leading to a sharp decrease in a reduction in the number of the young women who are suffering from the cancer-causing infection in England. This new vaccine has nearly wiped out the infections in the young women. It also can prevent thousands of cancer cases in Britain each year.

In between the year 2010 and 2016, the infections which are caused due to HPV 16 and 18 usually feel about 86 percent among the women whose age is 16 to 21 years old. They are eligible for the vaccine during the period. There are two types of  HPV 16 and 18 used for human papillomavirus and are also responsible for the cervical cancer cases.

As per the new figures from the Public Health England, it shows that the rate of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) in women have fallen. About more than 3,000 women have got diagnosed with cervical cancer and about more than 800 will be dying from the disease. The HPV virus causes most of the cases.

The vaccination for the virus will be extended to boys after the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has changed the advice by showing that it is cost effective.  It causes around 2,000 cases of cancer in men each year and about 650 deaths due to throat cancer. This is also can be pass on to the partners.

According to Professor Christopher Nutting, who is the Consultant oncologist at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London said that the Implementation of the HPV vaccination program would be saving thousands of lives and on adding the boys to the vaccination program it is highly welcomed move by the government.

The study which was done on this was concluded that there is a decline in various kinds of HPV and they are not protected against from the vaccination, and it leads to the idea that the vaccine can prevent other strains of the virus. As per Mesher, there are lots of different HPV types, and there are some types which are closely related as they have got some same type of cross-protection.
