Hpv Vaccine ? The Controversy Continues To Rage

by Rachel on May 26, 2010

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is directly responsible for up to 80% of all cases of cancer of the cervix among women in Australia has shown. The vast majority of HPV strains unrecognized and unnoticed, and quickly destroyed by our immune system. Although almost 250 strains of HPV have been identified, were found only four of them to lead to cervical cancer. Of these, # 16 and # 18 are the most dangerous. Cervical cancer is curable in its early stages, but the problem is that it often goes unnoticed until the cancer is advanced and inoperable. The strains of HPV, cancer of the cervix can sit dormant for long periods as they evolve slowly because of the structure of cells of the cervix. It is therefore crucial for all women aged 18-60 who are sexually active have regular Pap tests. A Pap smear, the presence of abnormal cells, additional surveys may be conducted. What is the vaccine against HPV? The vaccine against HPV to prevent HPV is not, it was designed for cancer of the cervix that occurs as a direct consequence of an HPV prevention. The vaccine was discovered by a team of Professor Ian Frazer of the University of Central Queensland for Immunology and Cancer Research has been. The vaccine against cervical cancer Gardasil is available in Australia and is currently a campaign to vaccinate all girls and women aged 12-18 on a curriculum. The vaccine is administered by physicians in a series of three injections. All three injections should, before the vaccine can not be guaranteed to complete. However, the vaccine is not guaranteed if the beneficiaries are already sexually active and at risk of the already exposed to HPV. Why is there controversy about the vaccine? Various groups opposed to vaccination in school-age girls for various reasons. The vaccine against HPV was only for a short period of time, so that the long-term viability of the vaccine has not yet been studied. During clinical trials on animals, has been discovered that high doses of polysorbate 80, which is used as a chemical stabilizer in the vaccine leads to infertility in some animals. However, the doses of polysorbate 80 were administered regularly over a longer period of time than low doses of the vaccine. Although limited side effects, including mild nausea or irritation at the injection site in Australia reported in the American tests have shown up to three girls who died following vaccination. The proof is in this stage are inconclusive. During clinical trials of anti-HPV in Australia and the U.S. have proven nearly 100% effective against HPV types 16 and # # 18, but no protection to protect against HPV strains many other and care for women who have had sexual experience before the vaccine was administered. Thus, it remains imperative that all women from the age of 18, a Pap test at least once every two years regardless of whether they had the vaccine against HPV. Medical experts suggest that women who are subjected to sexual intercourse with multiple partners Pap tests at least once a year. The slight discomfort, a number of young girls do when given the vaccine against HPV does not matter if the consequences of cervical cancer in comparison, the solution for parents is to gather as much information as possible about HPV and its consequences and then make an informed decision.
