There are over 170 strains of HPV, which infects the skin and causes lesions and warts all over the body—including the common wart, which usually surfaces on hands; it’s associated with strains two or seven.Of the 170 strains, more than 40 are genital related and are transmitted through sexual contact.No herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2) vaccine has been licensed for use in humans.HSV-2 glycoproteins B (g B) and D (g D) are targets of neutralizing antibodies and T cells, but clinical trials involving intramuscular (i.m.) injection of HSV-2 g B and g D in adjuvants have not been effective.In contrast, intramuscular vaccination with a soluble truncated g D protein (g D2t) in alum and monophosphoryl lipid A (MPL) elicited high neutralizing antibody titers and improved survival but did not reduce genital lesions and viral shedding.Vaccination combining ivag HPV-g Bsec/g Dsec and i.m.I was devastated at the thought I had given it to him, and he was sneaky enough to let me think that I had.
Working with Professor Ian Frazer and his team, we are developing therapeutic vaccines to target human papillomavirus (HPV) and herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2).
HPV is so common that nearly all sexually active men and women get it at some point in their lives.
HPV is associated with a number of cancers including cervical cancer and cancer of the vulva, vagina, penis, and rectal cancer.
It is estimated that 90 percent of genital warts are caused by strain six or 11.
HPV can also cause premalignant lesions that are a precursor for cervical, vulvar and anal cancers.Because I was deployed, I had to wait nine months to get diagnosed and treated; it was kinda rough mentally – more so than physically. The HPV will probably clear up on its own, and as for the HSV, it’s an inconvenient skin condition, not death, social ruin, or otherwise.
