What is the Study?

Up to 80% of people who are sexually active are infected with HPV at some stage in their life. For most people infection self-resolves. Many people contract HPV through skin to skin contact but don’t know because they don’t have any symptoms Sometimes HPV can cause a persistent infection. Screening for HPV helps people know if additional diagnostic testing or treatment may be required. 

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the name given to a group of around 200 viruses that cause infection on the surface of the skin. More than 40 types of HPV affect the genital area and the throat and it’s these types of HPV that are more likely to cause certain types of cancers. For example, the HPV virus can cause abnormal changes to cells in the cervix, as part of the virus life cycle. These changed cells can trigger cells in the cervix to grow uncontrollably, which is called cancer. In New Zealand, cervical cancer is the third most common gynaecological cancer. Māori and Pacific peoples continue to have a higher incidence rate. Your smear test may now involve self-taken swab for HPV. 

This potential new topical medication works by stopping HPV virus from multiplying (called an antiviral activity), and by killing affected human cells that have been infected by the HPV virus.

What Is Clinical Research?

Clinical research is the process of developing potential treatments for diseases. Medicines must pass through clinical trials to ensure their safety and effectiveness.
