Purpose of review This review discusses the vaccines available for the prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and focuses on the contribution of these vaccines to the control of three infections: hepatitis A, hepatitis B and human papillomavirus (HPV). Recent findings Hepatitis A is an STI in men who have sex with men (MSM). The introduction of the vaccine has resulted in the almost complete disappearance of epidemics of infection despite vaccine coverage of only 30–50% in MSM… 
Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C viral infection: A Review
TLDR
Patients with dual HBV and HCV infection have more severe liver disease, and are at an increased risk for progression to hepatocellular carcinoma, according to the paper.
Anti-retroviral Therapy Based HIV Prevention Among a Sample of Men Who Have Sex with Men in Cape Town, South Africa: Use of Post-exposure Prophylaxis and Knowledge on Pre-exposure Prophylaxis
TLDR
Reported risk behaviors in some high-risk participants did not change over time, demonstrating the need for additional longer-term HIV preventions such as PrEP, and indicates that adherence support is feasible from a state health clinic.
Translation of Biomedical Prevention Strategies for HIV: Prospects and Pitfalls
TLDR
A review identifies the major biomedical approaches demonstrated to be efficacious that are now available and highlights the need for behavioral risk reduction and adherence as essential components of any biomedical approach.
Evaluation of Serum Levels of HBV-DNA Concentration and HBSAG Titers of Hepatitis B Virus-Infected Subjects at NAUTH Nnewi
TLDR
HBsAg quantification showed strong positive correlation with HBV DNA viral load both in treatment and nontreatment groups, and HBV-DNA concentration and HBsAg titers of hepatitis b virus-infected subjects at NAUTH Nnewi were evaluated.
Distribution and perinatal transmission of bacterial vaginal infections in pregnant women without vaginal symptoms
Abstract Background: We evaluated the distribution and vertical transmission of bacterial vaginal infections in asymptomatic pregnant women. Methods: We performed multiplex PCR on secretions
Dynamic, Helminth-Induced Immune Modulation Influences the Outcome of Acute and Chronic Hepatitis B Virus Infection.
TLDR
Schistosome-induced IFN-γ had a prominent antiviral effect that outcompeted immunosuppressive effects of TH2 cytokines, whereas HBV coinfection did not alter schistosomiasis pathogenicity.
Seroprevalence of HBV infection and viral loads in outpatients attending a district hospital located in Mardan, Pakistan
TLDR
The highest HBV infection seroprevalence was found in patients of 21-40 age group, however Majority of the sick subjects were however seen with low viral titers.
Hepatitis Viral
TLDR
The aim of this prospective study is to present the initial experience, in a regional hepatitis clinic, of the implementation of PBS funded DAA regimens in a local community, and to provide some of the earliest real-life data from the first prospective cohort of patients exposed to the PBS-funded DAA in a Regional hepatitis clinic.
Clinical and virological implications of A1846T and C1913A/G mutations of hepatitis B virus genome in severe liver diseases
TLDR
Occurrence of A1846T and C1913A is positively associated with clinical presentations of severe liver disease and A18 46T mutation is significantly associated with poor prognosis of ACLF.

A Comprehensive Immunization Strategy to Eliminate Transmission of Hepatitis B Virus Infection in the United States
TLDR
This report, the second of a two-part statement from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), provides updated recommendations to increase hepatitis B vaccination of adults at risk for HBV infection.
Efficacy of quadrivalent HPV vaccine against HPV Infection and disease in males.
TLDR
Quadrivalent HPV vaccine prevents infection with HPV-6, 11, 16, and 18 and the development of related external genital lesions in males 16 to 26 years of age.
Sexual transmission efficiency of hepatitis B virus and human immunodeficiency virus among homosexual men.
TLDR
It is suggested that HBV is transmitted 8.6-fold more efficiently than HIV-1 among homosexual men studied and underscore the benefits of both HBV immunization and use of condoms during intercourse to prevent HBV infection.
What can surveillance of genital warts tell us?
TLDR
The quadrivalent HPV vaccine is highly effective against genital warts and Australian surveillance data in the 2 years after the introduction of the vaccine have shown large declines in younger women and to a lesser degree heterosexual men.
Cancers attributable to human papillomavirus infection.
TLDR
The epidemiological evidence for the role of HPV in human cancer is reviewed, and Australian trends in these cancers are described, showing the incidence of HPV-related oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancers is increasing, whereas incidence at HPV-unrelated sites is decreasing.
Hepatitis B in homosexual men: prevalence of infection and factors related to transmission.
Of 3,816 homosexual men examined in five sexually transmitted disease clinics in the United States, 6.1% had hepatitis B surface antigen, 52.4% had antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen, and 3.0%
Vaccines to prevent infections by oncoviruses.
TLDR
Prophylactic vaccines against other pathogenic viruses have an excellent record as public health interventions in terms of safety, effectiveness, and ability to reach economically disadvantaged populations, and should prompt efforts to develop and implement vaccines against oncoviruses.
The reach of a hepatitis B vaccination programme among men who have sex with men.
TLDR
A large proportion of MSM is aware that they could opt for free hepatitis B vaccination, and future vaccination programmes should focus on a personal approach, since the use of STD prevention workers was shown to be a successful tool for participation in the vaccination programme.
Aspects of Prophylactic Vaccination against Cervical Cancer and Other Human Papillomavirus-Related Cancers in Developing Countries
TLDR
In urban regions WHO-recommended vaccination strategies might be enough to significantly reduce HPV-related disease burden, but in the rural regions additional vaccination strategies, vaccinating both sexes rather than only females when school attendance is the highest and applying a two-dose regime, need to be considered.
