New Research Finds That One Dose of the HPV Vaccine might Be Effective

Researchers from the U.S. National Cancer Institute and other organizations looked through trials that were previously conducted on 24,000 young women. The goal was to estimate how much of a protection the women were able to receive from various levels of doses. Vaccine efficacy against incident HPV-16/18 infections for three doses was 77·0% (95% CI 74·7–79·1), two doses was 76·0% (62·0–85·3), and one dose was 85·7% (70·7–93·7).A change in dosage could increase the number of young women vaccinated by reducing ...

Study Shows the Same Increase in STD Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Girls

Girls who received the human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV) vaccine didn’t have higher rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) compared with non-vaccinated girls, suggesting the vaccine doesn’t lead to riskier sexual behavior—according to a study by Harvard University and University of Southern California researchers published in JAMA on Monday.

Researchers compared 21,000 vaccinated girls and more than 186,000 non-vaccinated girls in the US between 12-18 years of age for STDs, and found nothing to suggest an increase in sexual activity among the girls ...
