Genital wart rates drop dramatically following HPV vaccination in Australia

(April 18, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Australia - According to research published in the BMJ, genital warts rates have declined significantly due to the HPV vaccine. Researchers reviewed data from eight sexual health services across Australia, from 2004-2011. National HPV vaccination was implemented in 2007. Results showed that two years after the vaccine was introduced, genital warts diagnosis dropped by 59% in women aged 12-26, and by 39% in heterosexual men. In addition, there was a significant decrease in high-grade cervical abnormalities.
