Impact and Effectiveness of the Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus Vaccine: A Systematic Review of 10 Years of Real-World Experience
This article, published in Clinical Infectious Diseases, reports on a study that assessed the global effect of quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination on HPV infection and disease. The authors found that over the last decade, the impact of HPV vaccination in real-world settings is increasingly evident, especially among girls vaccinated before HPV exposure in countries with high vaccine uptake. They note that HPV-related disease remains a significant source of morbidity and mortality in developing and developed nations, underscoring the need for HPV vaccination programs with high population coverage.
