CDC recommends only two HPV shots for younger adolescents

Press Release

For Immediate Release: Wednesday October 19, 2016

CDC today recommended that 11- to 12-year-olds receive two doses of HPV vaccine at least six months apart rather than the previously recommended three doses to protect against cancers caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infections. Teens and young adults who start the series later, at ages 15 through 26 years, will continue to need three doses of HPV vaccine to protect against cancer-causing HPV infection.

“Safe, effective, and long-lasting protection against HPV cancers with two visits instead of three means more Americans will be protected from cancer,” said CDC Director Tom Frieden, M.D., M.P.H. “This recommendation will make it simpler for parents to get their children protected in time.”

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted today to recommend a 2-dose HPV vaccine schedule for young adolescents. ACIP is a panel of experts that advises the CDC on vaccine recommendations in the United States. CDC Director Frieden approved the committee’s recommendations shortly after the vote. ACIP recommendations approved by the CDC Director become agency guidelines on the date published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).

CDC and ACIP made this recommendation after a thorough review of studies over several meetings. CDC and ACIP reviewed data from clinical trials showing two doses of HPV vaccine in younger adolescents (aged 9-14 years) produced an immune response similar or higher than the response in young adults (aged 16-26 years) who received three doses.

Generally, preteens receive HPV vaccine at the same time as whooping cough and meningitis vaccines. Two doses of HPV vaccine given at least six months apart at ages 11 and 12 years will provide safe, effective, and long-lasting protection against HPV cancers. Adolescents ages 13-14 are also able to receive HPV vaccination on the new 2-dose schedule.

CDC will provide guidance to parents, healthcare professionals, and insurers on the change in recommendation. On October 7, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved adding a 2-dose schedule for 9-valent HPV vaccine (Gardasil® 9) for adolescents ages 9 through 14 years. CDC encourages clinicians to begin implementing the 2-dose schedule in their practice to protect their preteen patients from HPV cancers.

ACIP, CDC, FDA and partners monitor vaccines in use in the U.S. year-round. These updated recommendations are an example of using the latest available evidence to provide the best possible protection against serious diseases.

Los mejores comandos para GNU/Linux que deberías conocer

Autor: Ruben Andrés.

Usar el terminal en Ubuntu o en cualquier otra distribución GNU/Linux es uno de los grandes temores de aquellos usuarios que se inician en el descubrimiento de los sistemas operativos de software libre y abierto, que suelen estar más acostumbrados a las interfaces gráficas que a las líneas de comandos.

Sin embargo, conocer los comandos más básicos de Linux puede evitarte pasar por un laberinto de ventanas para llevar a cabo cualquier configuración o cambio en el sistema que, desde el terminal, tan solo supondría escribir algún que otro comando, siendo al final incluso más sencillo recordar el comando y hacerlo desde el terminal que aprenderse la ruta de ventanas hasta llegar a la opción que permite realizar el mismo cambio desde la interfaz gráfica.

Prospective Study Links HPV Detection in the Mouth to Head and Neck Cancer

In a new study, researchers have confirmed that infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) 16 precedes the development of some head and neck cancers. Previous studies have established an association between HPV-16 infection and oropharyngeal cancer, a type of head and neck cancer. The new study is the first to do so using samples collected from participants prior to their cancer diagnoses.

The study also reported, for the first time, an association between head and neck cancer risk and infection with HPV types other than HPV 16.

Ilir Agalliu, M.D., Sc.D., and Robert D. Burk, M.D., of Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, and their colleagues reported the results of this prospective study January 21 in JAMA Oncology.

3-D View of Mutations May Identify Potential Targets for Cancer Drugs

The HotSpot3D computational tool models how gene mutations (shown as bubble-shaped clusters) may affect the structure of proteins (spiral-shaped ribbons) as well as how those proteins may interact with a drug. Credit: Washington University in St. Louis / Li Ding, Ph.D., and Feng Chen, Ph.D.

A new computational tool may help expand the known number of mutations in cancer cells that could be targeted with new or existing drugs.

Researchers recently reported that the tool, called HotSpot3D, allowed them to model how genetic mutations change the ways proteins function and interact with each other to potentially drive cancer. It also helped them identify more than 800 novel mutations that potentially could be targeted with existing drugs.

The research team that developed HotSpot3D, led by Li Ding, Ph.D., and Feng Chen, Ph.D., of Washington University in St. Louis, published results from this first large-scale testing of the computational tool June 13 in Nature Genetics.
