"Some HPV types are more linked to cancer and others to warts. This further illustrates the potential utility of HPV vaccine for men who have sex with men and trans women, not only for HPV prevention but also possibly for HIV prevention".
According to Merck (MSD), the manufacturer of Gardasil 9, the "vaccine is indicated in the United States in females 9 through  years of age for the prevention of cervical, vulvar, vaginal, and anal cancers caused by HPV types 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58; precancerous or dysplastic lesions caused by HPV types 6, 11, 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58; and genital warts caused by HPV types 6 and 11".
"Today's approval represents an important opportunity to help prevent HPV-related diseases and cancers in a broader age range", said Peter Marks, the director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research.
Gardasil, which was first approved by the FDA in 2006, contains a dead copy of the virus, which prompts the body to create its own antibodies against the virus. "Most people don't realize that about 50 percent of cancers in the United States are preventable".
A wart typically will appear three weeks to eight months after an infection, and most people who contract HPV don't know they're infected and don't develop symptoms.
Gardasil-9 covers nine different subtypes of HPV and is now available for use in in the U.S.in males and females aged between nine and 26 years.
FDA approves expanded use of Gardasil 9 to include individuals 27 through 45 years old. FDA. In the trial, participants reported the usual side effects associated with any vaccine: injection site pain, swelling, redness and headaches. It's actually a little more nuanced than that. But new data show the vaccine can also benefit older adults because they are not often exposed to all nine strains covered by the vaccine. But if any individual already got exposed to a particular strain of HPV, then the vaccine will not work against such strain. Now, most insurance companies should cover Gardasil for those in the approved age range. It is estimated 14 million people will get HPV each year. According to a report from the The New York Times, the FDA is now looking into making a recommendation for the use of the vaccine in older people for scenarios like these. For now, if you're between 27 and 45 and interested in getting the vaccine, talk to your doctor and check with your insurance provider to make sure it's covered.
