The IMPRESS study:
Males aged 17-19 are invited to join this research project:, “Prevalence of genital HPV infection in males following introduction of universal male Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination”.
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a very common sexually transmitted virus that can lead to HPV-related cancers and disease in males and females. Different types of HPV can affect different parts of the body, and some types are more harmful than others. HPV can cause genital warts, which can be distressing but do not cause cancer.
This research project aims to demonstrate a fall in HPV infection in teenage males as a result of the introduction of a male vaccination program in Australia. There is already a female vaccination program in place in Australia which has resulted in a fall in HPV infection in females.
