cervical cancer and 850 deaths from the disease every year.
The survey covers studies in 14 high-income countries, including the UK. They looked at the rate of HPV plus cases of genital warts and precancerous cells in the cervix called CIN.
found that when the percentages were compared before vaccination and eight years after:
- Cases of HPV 16 and 18 were a reduction of 83% in girls aged 15-19 – 66% in females 20-24
- The cases of genital warts decreased by 67% in girls 15-19 years – 54% in women 20-24 years
- % in girls 15-19 years – 31% in women 20-24 years
He also showed that people who have not been vaccinated have benefited. Genital warts in men between 15 and 19 years of age have fallen by almost 50% and are also significant in women over 30 years of age. England's chief scientist David Mesher said: "There is a reduction in HPV strains and cervical disease, so there are also all assumptions that there will be a reduction in cervical cancer."
Prof. Mark Brison, of Laval University, Canada, who led the review said: "We will see a reduction in women aged 20-30 years over the next 10 years."
He said that the elimination of cervical cancer – definitely less than four cases per 100,000 – "may be possible if a sufficiently high vaccination range can be achieved and maintained."
Cancer Joe's cancer cancer said the findings "clearly show" the impact of vaccinations against HPV vaccination
"We sincerely hope that this will raise public confidence in the HPV vaccine so that it can be saved more life and getting closer to a world where cervical cancer is something of the past. "
