Vaccine After Cervix Tumors Has Benefits.

Vaccine After Cervix Tumors Has Benefits.

(ePharmaNews) - It is known that a vaccine is given before getting infected by germs and viruses for diseases' prevention, but once the infection happened, the vaccine would not give any benefits. Anyway, a recent study demonstrated that there is an exception to this rule in one type of cancer-causing viruses.


The study, published on the website of BMJ journal, included women who were diagnosed with precancerous cervix lesions and were treated subsequently.  The researchers followed up 587 women received the vaccine and 763 women who did not, from 24 countries around the world, between the ages of 15 and 26. The women were treated before positive progressing for malignant tumors by simple excisional surgery.  
The researchers found in the follow up that about 12% of women who did not receive the vaccine had recurrences of genital warts, while it happened in around 6% of those who did. Moreover, the risk of progression to cancer was 64.9% less in the vaccine group. 
Human papillomavirus is transmitted through sex and causes warts in the genital area both in men and women, these warts may develop to cancers in the case of infection with some types of this virus especially in women, so researchers have developed a vaccine to prevent these types of viral infections, but it is required to take the vaccine prior to the contagion. 
In conclusion, the authors reinforce that vaccination does not reduce progression to disease in women who are infected with HPV at the time of vaccination, but vaccinated women who developed disease had less frequent subsequent disease, so vaccination offered substantial benefit. The authors suggest that only long-term surveillance of the vaccinated population can “determine the population effectiveness of vaccination”
