Dangerous cervical lesions reduced since start of HPV vaccination
Reuters
Abnormal changes in the cervix that can lead to cancer are less frequent in young women since the introduction of human papillomavirus vaccines, a new study suggests. But tests to look for these changes are also being done less often in women age 21 and younger, which could account for at least some of the decline in "cervical lesions," the researchers point out.

Fred Hutch News Service
High-risk alpha human papilloma viruses are well known for their role in cervical and oropharyngeal cancer. However, there are more than 100 members of this family of viruses that are human pathogens and additionally, some members of the beta-HPV group have been found to be associated with non-melanoma skin cancer. While both alpha and beta HPVs are linked to cancer, their mechanisms of action appear to be markedly different.

Cancer Therapy Advisor
The presence of certain human papillomavirus (HPV)-16 antibodies in the blood was associated with improved rates of survival among patients with HPV-related oropharyngeal carcinoma, according to a new study published in Clinical Cancer Research. The incidence of HPV-positive oropharyngeal carcinoma has increased dramatically in recent years. Although patients with HPV-positive disease have a better prognosis than those with HPV-negative disease, researchers are still seeking a better understanding of what group of patients is more likely to respond to treatment.

Dietary supplements during cancer treatment: Yes or no?
U.S. News & World Report
Is it a good idea to take dietary supplements while going through active cancer treatment? It's a gray area. Some doctors say patients should hold off, at least while undergoing chemotherapy. But some practitioners in complementary or integrative medicine support the use of certain dietary supplements – such as vitamin D, mushroom extracts, green tea and curcumin – in certain cases, saying they may have cancer-fighting properties and reduce treatment side effects.
