Anvisa approves HPV vaccine against 9 subtypes of the virus

The National Agency of Sanitary Surveillance (Anvisa) approved on Tuesday (26) a new vaccine for protection against human papillomavirus (HPV). The new drug is Gardasil 9 which includes five new subtypes in HPV protection.

The drug has been licensed for use in children between 9 and 26 years of age. Ideally, immunization against HPV should be done before the onset of sexual life as HPV is transmitted through sexual intercourse.

The new vaccine includes HPV subtypes 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58 , in addition to subtypes 6, 11, 16, 18 that existed in the previous version of the product. The vaccine has been registered by the laboratory Merck Sharp & Dohme Pharmaceuticals Ltd.

In addition, the vaccine is indicated for the prevention of cervical, vulvar, vaginal and anus cancers; precancerous or dysplastic lesions; genital warts and persistent infections caused by human papillomavirus (HPV).

What is HPV?

HPV (human papilloma virus) is a virus that strikes the skin and mucous membranes and can cause warts or precursor lesions of cancer, such as cancer of the cervix, throat, or anus. Being a virus transmitted on skin-to-skin contact can be considered a sexually transmitted disease, the main form of transmission is through sexual intercourse, but it is also spread through the blood, through contaminated clothes or objects, through kissing and during childbirth.

Asthma is defined as a chronic disease of the airways, so as I say in consultation, it has a beginning, but it has neither means nor end. This is the definition of chronic disease.
