    More Americans Infected With HPV Than Previously Suspected

    Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States and there has been a recent increase in the number of cancer cases caused by HPV infection. Previous estimates have guessed that about half of all adults in the U.S. are infected with HPV, but recently released results of a large scale study prove that 69% or 2/3 of American adults are infected with HPV. While this sounds chilling, you should know that there are approximately 109 known strains of HPV and only a handful of those are known to cause the diseases commonly associated with HPV including genital warts, cervical cancer, andhead and neck cancers such as oropharyngeal cancer. Most of the adults who were identified in the study to be infected with one or more strain of HPV were perfectly healthy.

    Home Testing for Sleep Apnea Less Costly and Doesn't Change Clinical Outcomes

    A study recently presented at The American Thoracic Society International Conference proves that home testing for sleep apnea followed by home treatment with an auto-titrated CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine costs significantly less than laboratory testing and does not negatively impact clinical outcomes. "In our randomized study, sleep-related costs were substantially lower for patients who underwent home testing and treatment initiation than for those who underwent laboratory testing, and this cost saving was accomplished without sacrificing clinical quality," said lead study author Charles W. Atwood Jr., associate professor of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and director of the Sleep Disorders Program at the VA Pittsburgh Health System.  You can read more about this study in Newswise.
