PREDISPOSING FACTORS AND WAYS OF TRANSMISSION

PREDISPOSING FACTORS AND WAYS OF TRANSMISSION

PREDISPOSING FACTORS AND WAYS OF TRANSMISSION HPV treatment

The most common infection route is: sexually transmitted by direct contact of HPV on skin or mucosal tissues.

Are forms of HPV transmission: public places, sharing intimate apparel, towels, bathrooms, etc (not confirmed).

From mother to her baby during vaginal delivery.

Human body defenses against HPV

HPV virus infection is much more common in women and man with low defenses.

The HPV virus infection occurs more during pregnancy in woman, because it is a transitional period of available defenses.

The HPV virus infection is more common in patients receiving chemotherapy and medication that lowers the defenses.

The HPV virus infection is more common and aggressive in people with untreated HIV or AIDS.

The HPV virus infection is more common and aggressive in undernourished or malnourished people.

Infection HPV virus is more common in people with multiple sex partners.

The HPV virus infection is higher in women or men with a history of other STDs such as Herpes, Syphilis, etc.

The HPV virus infection is more common in smokers.

The HPV virus infection is more common in women not controlled by the gynecologist.

HPV infection is more common in women using estrogen (female hormone).

HPV is more common in previous HPV infected patients.

HPV is more common in people with multiple sexual contacts.

Human Papilloma Virus or HPV is the cause of Cervical cancer in women, the second in frequency after breast cancer. Human papillomavirus is also related to vaginal, vulvar, anus, rectum, penis, skin and mouth cancer, depending on the subtype of HPV that is infecting.


Now, and early and accurate detection of HPV is a reality through new DNA techniques. Polymerase Chain Reaction or (PCR) allows us to identify the viral subtype/types in the body with 100% sensitivity.

HPV is a DNA virus and PCR is a technique that looks for viral DNA.

Another technique, currently used to detect human papillomavirus is Hybrid Capture that only classifies viral subtypes most often found in male and female genitalia. This technique only reports the high-risk viral group related to cervical cancer and the low-risk HPV viruses associated with genital warts only. This technique has not specificity, it only inform us about the presence or absence of the twenty most common HPV viruses that infect human genitalia.

PCR is highly superior to the early diagnosis of human papillomavirus (HPV) allowing us to make an accurate diagnosis and identify which of all (more than 100) subtypes are infecting, and also the possibility of discovering new subtypes.

One of our MEDICAL CENTER objectives is to provide and report the importance of making PCR and/or Hybrid Capture with the Pap smear and Colposcopy to prevent premalignant and malignant lesions caused by HPV.
