HPV Vaccine Might Help Prevent Anal Cancers: Study

WEDNESDAY, Oct. 26 (HealthDay News) -- A vaccine to prevent anal cancer is safe and effective for young gay and bisexual males, according to a study funded in part by the vaccine's maker.

The vaccine proved effective in reducing anal infections with HPV and reduced the incidence of precancerous anal lesions by 54 percent to 75 percent.

"Based on these data, the vaccine works well to prevent HPV infection and precancerous anal disease, and will likely prevent anal cancer in men," Palefsky said. "The ideal time to begin vaccination would be before initiation of sexual ac
