A Groundbreaking Guide to the HPV Vaccine and the Science, Safety, and Business Behind It Cancer strikes fear in people’s hearts around globe. So the appearance of a vaccine to prevent cancer–as we are assured the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine will–seemed like a game-changer. Since 2006, over eighty countries have approved the vaccine, with glowing endorsements from the world’s foremost medical authorities. Bringing in over $2.5 billion in annual sales, the HPV vaccine is a pharmaceutical juggernaut. Yet scandal now engulfs it worldwide. The HPV Vaccine on Trial is a shocking tale, chronicling the global efforts to sell and compel this alleged miracle. The book opens with the vaccine’s invention, winds through its regulatory labyrinths, details the crushing denial and dismissal of reported harms and deaths, and uncovers the enormous profits pharma and inventors have reaped. Authors Holland, Mack Rosenberg, and Iorio drill down into the clinical trial data, government approvals, advertising, and personal accounts of egregious injuries that have followed in countries as far-flung as Japan, Australia, Colombia, India, Ireland, the U.K. and Denmark. The authors have written an unprecedented exposé about this vaunted vaccine. Written in plain language, the book is for everyone concerned – parents, patients, doctors, nurses, scientists, healthcare organizations, government officials, and schools. Ultimately, this book is not just about the HPV vaccine, but about how industry, government, and medical authorities may be putting the world’s children in harm’s way.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2020 in the subject Health - Children and adolescents, Clark University, language: English, abstract: This study seekts to determine the factors associate with uptake of human papilloma virus vaccine in Bukomansimbi Sub-County, Bukomansimbi district. The ministry of health Uganda adopted WHO guideline on routine immunization which was included in UNEPI and ensures that all girls at the age 11-15 to receive full dose in order to have full protection how ever since the introduction of the HPV vaccine in November 2015. There has been low uptake of the vaccine in Uganda with 33.6% prevalence among women combined with low screening uptake , this lead country being one of the highest cervical cancer with incidence rate of 47.5 per 100,000 per year. At Bukomansimbi Sub County the target population of girl to be vaccinated according to the Bukomansimbi medical center records was 200 girls in the age bracket, many girls do not complete their doses as shown by the vaccination records book, girls normally hide a way during the time of vaccination and parents discourage their girls from receiving the HPV vaccine due to ignorance. Since infection by HPV is the leading predisposing factor and cause of cancers of the cervix, vagina, and vulva in women this leads to the high expenditures for the family to spend on medical expenses, government on the other hand loses too much to treat.

Author's abstract: This theoretical inquiry has explored the political, social, and ethical controversy surrounding the government's push to mandate the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine for adolescent girls. This vaccine has the potential of preventing cancer, specifically cervical cancer. There is a growing debate in this country whether this new HPV vaccine, Gardasil®, should be added to the list of school-mandated vaccines. Karen Houppert (2007) has stated that this particular "vaccine protects girls and women from cervical cancer and genital warts caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV)" (p. 17). So, what is the controversy? It all started with the fact that this vaccine is the first immunization produced to prevent cancer caused by a sexually transmitted disease (STD). There are several U.S. politicians that want to make the HPV vaccine a compulsory vaccine. Because an STD causes this disease there is a debate, according to Houppert, "by compassionate conservatives and abstinence-only hardliners who object to mandating the vaccine since the disease was the result of a lifestyle decision" (p.17). On the other hand, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), "Gardasil® has proven 100% effective in preventing the four strains of HPV that are responsible for most cases of cervical cancer"(Manning, 2007, p. 11). So why not mandate it for adolescent girls? This question was explored further in this work using bioethical feminist theory as a theoretical framework. This study was grounded in the works of Rosemarie Tong and Susan Sherwin.

And, since HPV causes cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, penis, and anus, why was the vaccine recommended only for females? What did this reveal about gender and sexual politics in the United States? With hundreds of thousands of HPV-related cancer deaths worldwide, how did similar national debates in Europe and the developing world shape the global possibilities of cancer prevention?This volume provides insight into the deep moral, ethical, and scientific questions that must be addressed when sexual and social politics confront public health initiatives in the United States and around the world.

"Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a universal health problem that is transmitted sexually, affecting both male and female. Evidence indicates that about 79 million people are affected in the United States. Every year, about 14 million Americans are infected with HPV (CDC, 2016c). It is associated with multiple diseases such as cervical cancer, vaginal and vulvar cancers, anal cancers, throat cancer and penile cancers. A safe and efficient vaccine has been approved for both boys and girls. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced that teens and young adult under age 26 are at a particular risk for HPV. It is essential to start the vaccination series between 9 and 17 years of age. Parental and caregivers acceptance of HPV vaccine for their children has been a problem. Despite, the HPV vaccine promotions and availability, the vaccination rates of HPV continue to low. The focus should be on parents and caregivers because parental attitudes, beliefs, knowledge, intention to vaccinate and behaviors appear to contribute to low parental acceptance of the vaccine (Gamble et al., 2010). Parental and caregiver education improved parental knowledge, intention to vaccinate and attitude towards HPV vaccination. The purpose of this project was to develop an evidence-based parental and caregiver educational intervention to improve knowledge, intention to vaccinate and attitude towards HPV vaccine, hoping to influence parents and caregivers of children ages 9 to 17 to consent to the HPV vaccine. Parental education as an intervention, focusing on HPV and HPV vaccine was found to have positive impact on parental knowledge, intention to vaccinate and parental attitude toward HPV vaccine. There was a 40%, 73%, and 33% improvement respectively on parental knowledge, attitude, and intention to vaccinate which was higher than the benchmark. Key words: Human Papillomavirus, vaccine, parent education, knowledge, attitude, intention" -- Abstract

Human papillomaviruses (HPV) are a heterogeneous and still growing virus family. Topical research results on the replication cycle and carcinogenic mechanisms allow a better understanding of current prevention strategies. Written by leading experts, this volume of Monographs in Virology provides up-to-date information on the prevention of papillomavirus-induced cancers by prophylactic antiviral vaccines and early detection of precancerous lesions. A major section covers the tremendous clinical burden due to HPV infections: genital warts and laryngeal papillomas, the most notorious cervical cancer, but also further anogenital and tonsillar cancer, the incidence of which increased steeply during the last decades. Additionally, a section on prevention addresses the subject cytology - new concepts of biomarker development, detection of HPV DNA and RNA as well as their use in primary screening for early detection of precancerous lesions. Finally the book closes with a topical discussion of the most intriguing primary prevention of HPV infection by vaccination. As new perspectives for the prevention of HPV-related neoplasia raised great public interest, this book will be of value to clinicians and practitioners in gynecology, dermatology, urology and ENT, to pathologists, laboratory physicians, medical students, and public health authorities.
