Papillomavirus : caractéristiques virales et prévention

Abstract : Papillomaviruses (HPV) are very common viruses that affect both men and women. HPV infection is the first viral sexually transmitted viral infection in the world. Although most infections will be eliminated naturally by the body, some infections persist and are responsible for various pathologies, most often benign, warts, condylomas, but are also the cause of cancer, including cervix, penis or anus. Faced with this infection, there is a means of prevention, vaccination, it is recommended for all people aged 11 to 15 years and aims to provide protection against the types of papillomavirus high risk oncogenic most frequently involved in cancers, including HPV-16 and HPV-18. Despite the proven efficacy of HPV vaccines, current vaccination coverage in France is low, with only 24% of women vaccinated with a complete 3-dose schedule. This vaccination coverage is insufficient compared to other European countries. Several actions could be implemented by the health system to allow a better protection of the population such as facilitating access to the vaccine through the pharmacist and improving knowledge about HPV among the general population and health professionals.
