For their analysis, researchers developed a model that uses both HPV
infection and past infection data, as well as mathematical representations of the underlying mechanisms of infection, recovery, and the generation of antibodies, to paint a better picture of HPV
prevalence in the present and past.
The map of Slovenian municipalities that provide municipally funded HPV
vaccination for boys is presented in Figure 1.

In other words, it is still not conclusive, whether HPV
is the main etiological agent of oral cancer, or if it plays a supportive role in carcinogenesis, or if it should be even considered a commensal agent that may become pathogenic under certain conditions.
MYTH 4: All HPV
infections can clear up on their its own.
Of the 22 cases in which HPV
genome was detected, 11 were female (46% of total female cases) while 11 were male (38% of total male cases); no statistically significant difference was found between genders (P=0.58).
Tomljenovic and Shaw (10) indicated that presently governmental health agencies worldwide state that HPV
vaccines are safe and effective and that the benefits of HPV
vaccination outweigh the risks.
The distribution of HPV
infection in 128 patients, correlated with cytopathological diagnosis, is shown in Table 1.
transforms infected epithelial cells and causes defects in genes controlling apoptosis, cell-cycle and DNA repair, thereby promoting tumorigenesis7.
The intervention group (9,552) had cervical cancer screening with a high-risk HPV
DNA test that detects types 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, and 68.
The goal of the campaign is to have 80 percent of 13-year-old boys and girls in the US fully vaccinated with HPV
vaccine by 2026--20 years after introduction of the first HPV
The genotypes and prevalence of HPVs
were analyzed, and the difference in prevalence among inpatients with HPV
carrier and cervical pre-cancer and cancer lesions were compared.
