Decline in cervical lesions driven by HPV vaccination

May 28, 2017

Age and cohort patterns seen in recent data showed that declines in high-grade cervical lesions among young women are likely driven by HPV vaccination, not changes in screening or risk behaviors, according to findings published in Clinical Infectious Diseases.

“Cervical lesions are clinically important outcomes to monitor because they are most closely related to the development of cervical cancer and because they are diagnoses that incur substantial morbidity, psychological distress and treatment cost,” Linda M. Niccolai, PhD, from the Connecticut emerging infections program at Yale School of Public Health, and colleagues wrote. “Though evidence of the impact of HPV vaccines on cervical infections and genital warts is growing, less is known about trends in precancerous high-grade cervical lesions.”
