Human papilloma virus (HPV)
The human papillomavirus is a common agent of sexual transmission. There is more of 100 kinds of HPV, some of which do not cause any symptoms. Other types (6-11) cause genital warts. The most aggressive (16-18) can cause cancer in both women and men; this includes cancer of the cervix, vagina, etc.
It is transmitted through genital and skin-to-skin contact. Both men and women can get VHP and pass it on. Often, those who suffer from it do not know it, so they are not aware that they transmit it to other people. Almost everyone who has had sex will get VHP at some point in their lives.
Early diagnosis is made by cytology and confirmed by biopsy, while virus typing is carried out by PCR.
There are three vaccines that protect against HPV types 16 and 18., one for the two that cause 70% of cervical cancer cases and the other that protects against types 6 and 11, which cause 90% of genital warts.
