More research is needed to better understand how non-cancer causing strains of HPV interact with cancer-causing strains, the researchers said.
HPVs are a group of more than 150 related viruses that infect different parts of the body.
More than two-thirds of healthy Americans have a human papillomavirus (HPV) infection on some part of their body, a new study suggests.
Researchers examined DNA from tissue samples of about 100 men and women and found that 69 percent were infected with HPV.
The treatments for HPV infections in these cases can just be conducted until after delivery.However, most earlier studies tested for only a small fraction of the known HPV types — those that are linked to cancer, Pei said.The method used in the new study detected all types of HPV, Pei said.HPV stands for human papilloma virus, a DNA virus from the family of papilloma virus that causes a dangerous disease among human.In fact, almost of HPV infections present unclear symptoms and some people can get clinical problems like cancers of anus, penis, vagina, vulva, cervix, and warts.
