Human papillomavirus (HPV)
Transcript of Human papillomavirus (HPV)
infects the skin and the genital area
over five genera:
over 16 species
1950s, group of scientists from different countries
Stefania Ginsburg-Jabłońska -> connection between HPV and skin cancer, 1972
Signs and Symptoms
genital warts in males and females
warts can develop in the throat; condition called RRP (Recurent Respiratory Papillomatosis)
certain HPV types can also cause the normal cells in the body to turn abnormal, leading to cancer
spread through genital contact, most often through vaginal and anal sex
may also be passed through from oral sex or genital-genital contact
can be passed through same sex or straight partners
possible to get more than one type of HPV (over 40 types)
small bump or several bumps near the genital area
can appear large, small, flat, or bumpy
also can be shaped like a cauliflower
sometimes can have a discharge of pus
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
usually identified by location of the warts
either on genital area or in the throat.
usually does not irritate, except might get itchy on a regular basis

alpha, beta, gamma, mu and nu
Treatment and Prevention
treated by HPV vaccines
can protect males and females against the most common type of HPV that lead to disease and cancer
aim to prevent a future HPV infection
Gardisil & Cervarix
Pap Smear test checks for the changes of cells in the cervix
indicate whether you have an infection, abnormal cervical cells, or cervical cancer
Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP)
GENITAL WARTS TREATMENT
Cryotherapy- using liquid nitrogen, abnormal, damaged cells are executed by freezing
Electrosurgery- radiating abnormal cells by passing an electric current
Laser Therapy- eradicate abnormal cells with the use of a laser that vaporizes
Effects of HPV upon Society
once one person has it, it spreads causing many people to become infected.
10% to 30% of Canadians are infected with HPV
leads to many people getting genital warts and cancer
warts can appear within months after getting HPV
infection with one type does not build immunity to other types
having multiple partners increases your risk of infection
cancer often takes years to develop after a person gets HPV
