trains of a common sexually transmitted virus called the human papillomavirus, or HPV. Physicians typically screen women for cervical cancer using a Pap smear, sometimes with HPV testing, every one to three years. A vaccine to prevent infection with the strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer is available and is recommended for girls and women between the ages of 11 and 26. The value of the vaccine in older women is questionable because exposure to the virus is likely to have occurred in many women. Researchers modeled a cost-effectiveness analysis to assess the health and economic outcomes of HPV vaccination in older women in the U.S. participating in a screening program. The researchers found that adding HPV vaccination for women aged 35 to 45 years cost from $116,950 to $381,590 per quality-adjusted life-year gained, which is more than the current United States health care system is generally willing to pay for preventive care interventions. The research suggests that current cervical cancer screening interventions are the more economically favorable strategy for reducing cervical cancer deaths among older women.
