Blog qui se veut mon antre d'articles, de commentaires, de pensées, de réflexions autour de ce que je fais de mieux dans ma vie professionnelle : écrire, décrire, analyser. Sur les gays, sur le retour de l'ordre moral, sur le sida, français et étranger, se veut un relais, en espérant que les gays se remobilisent.

Study links anal cancer with gay habits
Summary : a high number of sexual partners and the use of some recreational drugs could increase the risk of anal cancer in gay men, according to a new study.

A high number of sexual partners and the use of some recreational drugs could increase the risk of anal cancer in gay men, according to a new study.

According to the research, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, the risk of developing "low-grade lesions", which could lead to anal cancer at a later stage, was associated with having more than five partners and the use of poppers during sex.

Campaigners in the UK and US have called for more awareness-generating projects on anal cancer, and for screening strategies similar to the smear tests given to women.

The risk of high-grade lesions was associated with any anal HPV infection and infection with an increasing number of HPV types.

Earlier this year, a study revealed a promising vaccine for some HPV variants. The vaccine, which targets variants of the human papillomavirus (HPV), recorded a 90 percent reduction in infection rate, according to results published in the online journal Lancet Oncology.

Developed by pharmaceutical giant Merck, the vaccine could be used to protect gay men from anal cancer, although researchers are primarily focusing on cervical cancer in women.

Pas à ma connaissance, mais on aura peut-être des réponses à la rentrée; ceci dit, au vu ce que l'InVS écrit, faut peut-être veiller comment eux ils voient le développement.
