HPV in young men who have sex with men: preliminary findings from the HYPER Study

Huachun Zou

Homosexually active men are at increased risk for human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and HPV associated anal cancer. There are no previous studies that focused on the prevalence of HPV in samples of young homosexual and bisexual men and used longitudinal detection of HPV over time to define the presence of infection. The HYPER study aims to determine the prevalence and risk factors of HPV infection among young homosexual and bisexual men. Young men, aged 16 to 20, who report homosexual behaviour or attraction were recruited in Melbourne via sexual health clinics, universities, community events, gay media, social networking websites and peer recruitment.
