Why HPV vaccine can prevent “Cancer” ?
In China, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer amongst women aged 15 to 44, with about 130,000 new cases each year and a fatality rate of 61.5%. Almost all (99.7%) cervical cancers are caused by Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Therefore, cervical cancer is preventable.
Most people with HPV never develop symptoms or health problems. Most HPV infections (9 out of 10) go away by themselves within two years. But sometimes, HPV infections will last longer and cause certain cancers and other diseases. Vaccinating against HPV is recognized as an effective way to prevent cervical cancer.
Three available vaccines
Indications: HPV vaccine Cervarix® is applicable to females from age 9 to 45; HPV vaccine Gardasil® is applicable to females from age 20 to 45; and HPV vaccine Gardasil®9 is applicable to females from age 16 to 26. It is encouraged that females start the process of vaccinating against HPV at an early age. Children develop a much stronger and better response to vaccinations compared to adults, and the HPV vaccination is most effective if given before a female is sexually active and potentially exposed to HPV.
Range of prevention of each vaccination: All three vaccines prevent infection by HPV types 16 and 18, two high-risk HPVs that cause approximately 70% of cervical cancers and greater than 80% of other HPV-related cancers (1, 2). Gardasil also prevents infection with HPV types 6 and 11, which cause 90% of genital warts (3). Gardasil 9 prevents infection with the same four HPV types plus five additional cancer-causing types (31, 33, 45, 52, and 58). With the expanded HPV coverage, Gardasil 9 prevents 90% of all HPV-related cancers including cervical cancer, genital warts, and other HPV-related diseases such as cervical dysplasia, the precursor to cervical cancer.
The Cervarix is manufactured by (GSK) GlaxoSmithKline. Gardasil and Gardasil 9 are manufactured by Merck.
How is HPV Vaccination given?
HPV Vaccination is given as 3 shots over 6 months.
Cervarix is given at 0, 1 and 6 months and Gardasil and Gardasil 9 are given at 0, 2 and 6 months.
What do you do before getting the Vaccination?
Tell the doctor your healthcare conditions, such as allergies, if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, your last menstrual period, and any adverse reactions you have had in the past when receiving a vaccination.
One more thing is much more important than getting vaccinated:
Vaccination is not a substitute for cervical cancer screening. The vaccine does not protect against all HPV types that can cause cervical cancer. Women should still get regular cervical cancer screening. The combination of HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening will provide the greatest protection against cervical cancer.
Current screening recommendations for the average woman:
Women ages 21-29 should have TCT (Pap) screening done every 3 years. For women who are 30 and older, both HPV and TCT (Pap) screening should be done every three to five years.
