Can the hpv procervic(genticel) can be used in men as for women as the therapeutic vaccine once if its clinically approved?And when willit be approved

Pending approval: GTL001 (ProCervix) clinical trials are still underway and it looks as if the trials are only available to women. I would imagine if the trials go well, that it would eventually be tested and offered to men. Women are at risk for cervical cancer and thus it makes sense at this point to test and administer the vaccine to women first. ...Read more

Why is it that 27 older males can not get preventive HPV vaccine?

Why is it that 27 older males can not get preventive HPV vaccine?

Insurance contract: A person may benefit from this vaccine at any age.However, the series is expensive (raw cost running ~$200/dose x 3) and most insurance contracts are written with language that only covers vaccines for their fda approved age range. That range reflects expensive research data on test groups. You can pay out of pocket, but insurers only cover the target age group. ...Read more

Dose the HPV vaccine have and affect on the male reproduction? Because i heard it is use as population control

It's just a vaccine.: The hpv vaccine is a good vaccine, capable of preventing some diseases in men, but especially good for young women because their infection with high risk hpv may lead to cervical cancer. But, it's just a vaccine. Being just a vaccine, it has no way of stopping a couple from meeting, going out on dates, getting married, having sex, raising 10 children, or anything else along that line. ...Read more

Should a homosexual male get the HPV vaccine? It is confusing because I hear it can have serious side effects and only protects for five years.

Should a homosexual male get the HPV vaccine? It is confusing because I hear it can have serious side effects and only protects for five years.

Yes: The HPV vaccine is an anti-cancer vaccine protecting against most cervical cancers and probably against anal cancers caused by the same viruses. The vaccine is very, very safe but is expensive. With limited resources in healthcare, maybe girls should be offered the vaccine first, before the boys. At this time, the vaccine is recommended for all teens, both girls and boys. ...Read more

Are there any other HPV vaccines that are as good as or protect better than or against more strains than Gardsil 9 strain? I am a 17 yr old male

Are there any other HPV vaccines that are as good as or protect better than or against more strains than Gardsil 9 strain?
I am a 17 yr old male

No: Gardasil-9 is as good as it gets at this time (2016). It will be many years (maybe 15 years) before there is enough data from millions of people who got one or more of the 3 HPV vaccines in the U.S. When there is enough data, researchers will be able to say which of the 3 vaccines gave the best protection against catching HPV, getting warts, getting precancerous changes, and getting cancers. ...Read more

Yes: I'm sure there are many. First...they should do an anal PAP to see what serotypes are present first. Male PAPS are becoming more and more popular and I use them extensively in my HIV practice by the dozens. ...Read more

If I have a HPV 9-valent vaccine now&in future a better vaccine came out against more strain of the virus,can I still have the better vaccine? 17 male

Yes, you can.: Since vaccines are merely pieces of antigen that your immune system reacts to and develops its own antibodies to, there should be no scientific reason why you would be unable to receive a new vaccine in the future with a higher number of valences. ...Read more
