As Time Passes Has Your HPV Case Resolved?

At 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months Dr. Woo Dae Kang and researchers at the Chonnmam National Univeristy looked at women with high grade cervical dysplasia after LEEP and looked at the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) viral persistance. Up to 30% have peristant disease of some nature, and understanding whethether the condition has been resolved has been a challenge for patients and their clinicians. The group used their very sensitive HPV chip test and have determined that for women who continue to test + for High Risk HPV types have about 44+% chance of recurrance. Especially important were women who had persistance of HPV type 16 or 18. These tests are now available and can be requested from your provider, they are called type specific HPV tests.
