HPV persists significantly longer in African-American women

from Healio

The time it took for black women to clear a high-risk HPV infection was nearly double that of white women, according to a study published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases. Researchers conducted a prospective longitudinal study by recruiting women at a college student health center. The study included 113 black women and 326 white women who visited the clinic twice a year for HPV testing and Pap smears. Within the cohort, there were 2,121 study visits and 906 (42.7 percent) were positive for HPV. White women were HPV positive on 40 percent of the visits, but black women were positive on 51 percent of the visits. more
