Study on new vaccine against human papilloma virus

21/01/2013

We need HIV negative men between 16 and 26 years old who have sex with men to participate in a study of a new vaccine against HPV, a sexually transmitted virus responsible for genital warts, abnormal cytology and various cancers.

The new vaccine has the potential to protect against HPV infections that cause 90% of genital warts and 80-85% of cervical cancers, and a significant proportion of cancers of vagina, vulva, anus, penis and oropharynx both in men and women. The new vaccine therefore substantially increases the potential of both preventive HPV vaccine currently on the market.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the immunogenicity and tolerability of the vaccine in young men aged 16 to 26 years old compared with young women aged 16 to 26 years.

The new vaccine has been extensively tested in other studies in which thousands of people participated worldwide.
