Cohen, Califano and other HPV experts are available to discuss HPV, the vaccine and cancer prevention.

Brown explained that previous research has shown that HPV, in general, was linked to HIV infection, but his research team looked at infection with 37 HPV types and found that individual types are linked, "which is more specific than saying HPV is linked". The conclusion: the shots were 88 percent effective in preventing viral symptoms of persistent infection, including genital warts, precancerous lesions of the vulva and vagina and cervix, and cervical cancer.

She added that many women with the diagnosis have hysterectomies. The virus has many strains. The recommended dose for those over 26 will be three doses.

The HPV vaccine is trying to change that. About 12,000 women become diagnosed with cervical cancer and about 4,000 women die from the cancer caused by certain HPV viruses each year. Food and Drug Administration has expanded the use of Gardasil 9 - a vaccine for HPV - to include women and men age 27 through 45.

Each year in the United States imagine about 14 million individuals both men and women get infected by human papillomavirus, as per the Centre for "Disease Control and Prevention".

In 2014, the FDA approved Gardasil 9, which covers the same four HPV types as well as five additional kinds. For now, if you're between 27 and 45 and interested in getting the vaccine, talk to your doctor and check with your insurance provider to make sure it's covered.

According to the FDA, Gardasil had been the vaccine approved by the FDA in 2006 to help prevent certain cancers and diseases caused by four HPV types. However, Dr. Michael Krychman, MD, OB/GYN, sexual medicine gynecologist and the executive director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine and co-author of The Sexual Spark: 20 Essential Exercises to Reignite the Passion, tells Bustle that most cases of HPV are cleared from the body before people get warts - also known as papillomas - or complications from HPV.

Prior to this FDA approval, a Gardasil study undertaken among 3,200 women who were between 27 and 45 were monitored for an average of more than three years. According to CDC data, just half of all adolescents were completely inoculated with all the doses of Gardasil as of last year-although about 66 percent of those aged 13 to 17 had received the first dose. Only about 60% of teens in the USA have initiated the HPV vaccine "so it's imperative that our physicians are adequately counseling patients on the manifestations of HPV", said Laitman.

An worldwide research team led by a scientist at the University of California, Riverside, has for the first time identified individual types of the human papillomavirus, or HPV, that are specifically linked to HIV infection.
