Adolescent sex linked to an increase in the detection

Jun 25th 2014 at 10:24 PM

Invasive cervical cancer in postmenopausal women is on the list of diseases that often affect these Baby Boom generation (people born between 1946 and 1964 years),

points out Professor. dr. Patti E. Gravitt from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore. Narrower scope of work facing prof. Gravittova molecular microbiology and immunology of human papilloma virus.

The highlight of the incidence of HPV found in young women who are first entering into sexual relations. It is also known that women in Central, South and West Africa another highlight of the incidence of HPV reach when entering menopause.

Dr. Gravittova wanted to investigate whether the absence of a second peak incidence of HPV in American linked to the fact that during this period women do not opt ​​for frequently changing sexual partners, the risk of activation of HPV, in this age rather low.

The study included 843 women aged 35 to 60 years, in the years 2008-2011 regular gynecological examinations performed in gynecological clinics in Baltimore. The table ended up data on their lifelong sexual life, sexual life of current and previous abnormal Pap tests, while they take a cervical swab for HPV typing.

Younger women are experiencing a higher number of  often indicated more sexual partners in the last six months. In the age group 35-39 years were in the last six months, 11.2% of sexually inactive women in the age group 55 - 60 years while 33.3% of women.

Detection probability of HPV among women who had a life of more than 5  partners was higher among women in the age group 50-60 years, the probability of which were HPV type was 4.0 (95% CI assurance from 1.9 to 8 , 7), the probability of high-risk HPV types was 13.4 (95% CI reliability, 1.7 to 10.8), if the results are compared with women in the age group 25 - 49 years.

"Five or more sexual partners in life is due to 37% higher risk of infection with HPV types which had a 28% higher risk of infection with high-risk HPV in young women or 62.3% of which were HPV type 87 and 2% for high-risk HPV among older women, "he said. Gravittova.

"Women who have his first sexual experience encountered at the beginning of these sexual revolution (in the sixties and seventies) had a lower risk of HPV infection, are also indicated a lower number of sexual partners.

When we contamination sorted by number of sexual partners and a robust probabilistic assessment of HPV infection (and thus reactivation), the prevalence decreased only in women who had fewer than five sexual partners. The risk for women with five or more sexual partners was higher in older women (50-60 years), choir of young subjects (35-49 years). "

The accompanying words are Darron R. Brown from the Department of Infectious Diseases Institute of Microbiology and Immunology, and Bree Weaver of the Department of adolescenčno Medicine Faculty of Medicine, Indiana explained that the virus instead of two years disappear from the body, hides and latent phase in measurable quantity remains inactive,

later in life it can be reactivated and cause illness. The risk of reactivation of oncogenic HPV may be increased by 50 this year, age, infection is largely due to the older HPV infection. In this age of new infections with HPV virus is very rare.

The study was somewhat limited by the inability to confirmation that the detected HPV new, reactivated or permanently active. In addition, they have sexual steroid hormones in aging women ability control of HPV infections.

"We believe that the impact of the sexual revolution concealed the increase in the prevalence of HPV in later life, which is reflected in post-secondary reactivated latent infection

. Long-term monitoring of women who have been exposed to the infection and will be in the next decade passing in the perimenopause period is due assessment of the potential risk of invasive cervical cancer, urgent! "
