Seroreactivity to human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) virus-like particles (VLPs) in men attending clinics for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in Denmark (n = 219) and Greenland (n = 88) was compared with seroreactivity in women attending the same clinics and was furthermore related to epidemiologic variables and concurrent HPV DNA detection. Risk factors for male seropositivity in Denmark were lifetime number of sex partners, a history of STDs, and sexual preference and in Greenland… CONTINUE READING
