Trial Information

Prevalence of HPV Genotypes in Genital Warts in Colombian Male and Female Population Attending Medical Services.

Study population

Female and male between 18 - 45 years of age living in Bogota, Colombia

Sample frame

Patients attending to gynecologic or STD consult in a mayor out patient clinic in Bogotá


Analysis of the information will be exhaustive. We will calculate prevalence of HPV
genotypes in the GW in both sexes separately. Analyses of the survey will include simple
frequencies, percentages, and comparison of results related to HPV knowledge with
sociodemographic and clinical information. Explorative analysis using parametric or non
parametric statistics of the items included in the questionnaire and clinical forms will be
done as appropriate. We will calculate the medical cost of patients enrolled in the study.
The treatment protocols used for this protocol will reflect the current clinical practice
accepted for the treatment of genital warts. We will use national reference cost list (SOAT)
to determine the cost of procedures included.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Age between 18-45 years.

- Lesions suspicious of being HPV related.

- Cauliflower-like condylomata acuminata lesions that usually involve moist

- keratotic and smooth papular warts, usually on dry surfaces

- subclinical "flat" warts, that can be found on any mucosal or cutaneous surface
and, which are probably overseen in the majority of cases.

- Lesions other than the described above, are not to be biopsied, according to the
investigator criteria.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Not willing to participate

- To be a participant in any HPV vaccine clinical trial study

- Known immune suppressive disease.
