Abstracts

Final results from the Study of the Prevention of Anal Cancer (SPANC) in older gay and bisexual men (GBM)
Dr Isobel Mary Poynten

The SPANC study was a prospective longitudinal study of the natural history of anal HPV infection and associated anal cellular abnormalities in gay and bisexual men. 617 men were enrolled and three-year follow-up study data on the incidence and clearance of anal HPV and HSIL will be presented.
 


Anal HPV infections and anal dysplasia in HIV-positive MSM in Amsterdam
Dr Maarten F Schim van der Loeff

HPV causes anal cancer, but much about pathogenesis and epidemiology of anal HPV is unknown. Since 2010 a series of studies were conducted in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to study the dynamics of anal HPV infection and anal cancer precursor lesions. I will give an overview of these studies and their main findings.
