The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Transmission Pilot Study

We planned to enroll 150 female sexual partners, 75 per year for 2 years, of male study
participants in the HPV Infection in Men (HIM) Study. The enrollment period is from June
2006 through May 2008 and participants will be followed through May 2010. At all study
visits participants will undergo interviews, a physical exam and laboratory analysis for HPV
for a total of 5 clinical visits scheduled every 6 months over 2 years of follow-up. In
addition, at each study visit, participants will provide blood for HPV antibody analyses. At
enrollment, visit 3 and visit 5 a Pap smear test will be done. At the enrollment visit,
study participants will complete a questionnaire designed to assess social and behavioral
risk factors for the acquisition of HPV. At each subsequent study visit, participants will
be asked to provide updated information to assess changes in risk behaviors such as condom
use, relations with new partners, and tobacco use.
