Acceptance of Human Papillomavirus Vaccination in Postpartum Women
Worldwide cervical cancer remains a major cause mortality among women. It is estimated that each year over 490,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and more than 270,000 die from the disease. While the implementation of widespread screening programs has reduced the burden of cervical cancer, a large percentage of the population still remains unscreened or is underscreened. It is now recognized that human papillomavirus (HPV) is a necessary precursor for the development of cervical cancer. The first vaccine to prevent HPV was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is now available at doctors offices. Despite the availability of a safe and effective means for the prevention of cervical cancer, widespread implementation of vaccination has been extremely difficult. Several potential issues have limited the development of widespread HPV vaccination programs, including cultural and religious beliefs, and limitations in the practicality of administering the vaccine. The overall goals of our work are to improve access to preventive strategies for cervical cancer. In this proposal we will examine the strategy of HPV vaccination for women who have just given birth. We believe that HPV vaccination of these women will be associated with a high level of patient satisfaction and acceptance. If successful, this strategy could play a major role in advancing the acceptance and implementation of HPV vaccination in the United States.
1. To estimate compliance with the HPV vaccine series when initiated in postpartum women.
1. To determine patient acceptance and satisfaction with HPV vaccination administered in the postpartum period.
2. To determine predictors of compliance with the HPV vaccination series.

DNA probes specific for the identification of human papilloma virus.
A small, often impalpable benign papilloma arising in a lactiferous duct and frequently causing bleeding from the nipple. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Product of the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor gene. It is a nuclear phosphoprotein hypothesized to normally act as an inhibitor of cell proliferation. Rb protein is absent in retinoblastoma cell lines. It also has been shown to form complexes with the adenovirus E1A protein, the SV40 T antigen, and the human papilloma virus E7 protein.
A strain of PRIMATE T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 2, closely related to the human HTLV-1 virus. The clinical, hematological, and histopathological characteristics of the disease in STLV-infected monkeys are very similar to those of human adult T-cell leukemia. Subgroups include the African green monkey subtype (STLV-I-AGM), for which the nucleotide sequence is 95% homologous with that of HUMAN T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1, and the Asian rhesus macaque subtype (STLV-I-MM), for which the nucleotide sequence is 90% homologous with that of HUMAN T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1.
Proteins encoded by the TAT GENES of the HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS.
RATIONALE: Vaccines made from papilloma virus cells may make the body build an immune response to and kill papilloma cells. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of papilloma...
This study will investigate the efficacy and safety of the quadrivalent vaccine (Gardasil) against the human papilloma virus (HPV) in HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infected males.
HPV DNA testing by a clinician has been shown to be highly sensitive in detecting cervical disease. Can we prove that HPV self-testing will be sufficiently sensitive to detect disease in...
RATIONALE: Learning about young adults' knowledge and perceptions about risk factors for the human papilloma virus and cervical cancer may help doctors learn more about how to prevent huma...
Cervical cancer is associated with Human Papilloma Virus. About 57% of cervical cancer is the result of infection by Human Papilloma Virus strain 16 (HPV-16). HPV is a very common virus...
Human papilloma virus (HPV) DNA has been detected in breast carcinoma by different laboratorial techniques, suggesting that the virus could play a role in the pathogenesis of this tumor.
Papilloma frequently develops as a benign tumor of the head and neck area, but its potential for malignant transformation has yet to be studied. This study aims to provide basic information for papill...
There is a well-known association between human papilloma virus (HPV) and cervical neoplasia. The aim of this study was to investigate the types of HPV DNA and to compare the results with colposcopic...
The expected reduction in cervical cancer incidence as result of increased access to antiretroviral therapy is yet to be seen. In this study we investigated the effect of HIV infection and treatment o...
Infection with human papilloma virus (HPV) is the main cause of cervical cancer, but the local risk factors have not been sufficiently assessed.
