New therapy device heals the body by reprogramming cells
Mae Chan
Prevent Disease
Wed, 25 Oct 2017 16:53 UTC


© God & Science Org
Researchers have developed a device that can switch cell function to rescue failing body functions with a single touch. The technology, known as Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT), injects genetic code into skin cells, turning those skin cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions.

Although cellular therapies represent a promising strategy for a number of conditions, current approaches have faced major translational hurdles, including limited cell sources and the need for cumbersome pre-processing steps.

A new device developed at The Ohio State University can start healing organs in a "fraction of a second," researchers say.

The technology has the potential to save the lives of car crash victims and even deployed soldiers injured on site. It's a dime-sized silicone chip that "injects genetic code into skin cells, turning those skin cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions," according to a release.

In the study published in Nature Nanotechnology, first author Daniel Gallego-Perez of Ohio State demonstrated that the technique worked with up to 98 percent efficiently.



In lab tests, one touch of TNT completely repaired injured legs of mice over three weeks by turning skin cells into vascular cells.

And, it not only works on skin cells, it can restore any type of tissue, Chandan Sen, director of the Center for Regenerative Medicine and Cell-Based Therapies, said. For example, the technology restored brain function in a mouse who suffered a stroke by growing brain cells on its skin.

"It takes just a fraction of a second. You simply touch the chip to the wounded area, then remove it," said Chanda n Sen, PhD, director of the Center for Regenerative Medicine and Cell-Based Therapies at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. "At that point, the cell reprogramming begins."

This is a breakthrough technology, because it's the first time cells have been reprogrammed in a live body. Current cell therapy methods are high risk, like those that introduce a virus and include multiple steps. There are no known side effects to TNT and treatment is less than a second, Sen said.

"This technology does not require a laboratory or hospital and can actually be executed in the field," Sen said. "It's less than 100 grams to carry and will have a long shelf life."

In a series of lab tests, researchers applied the chip to the injured legs of mice that vascular scans showed had little to no blood flow. "We reprogrammed their skin cells to become vascular cells," Sen said. "Within a week we began noticing the transformation."

By the second week, active blood vessels had formed, and by the third week, the legs of the mice were saved--with no other form of treatment.

"It extends the concept known as gene therapy, and it has been around for quite some time," said study collaborator James Lee, PhD, a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at Ohio State. "The difference with our technology is how we deliver the DNA into the cells."

It is awaiting FDA approval, but Sen, who has been working on this for four years, expects TNT will be tested on humans within the year. He says he's talking with Walter Reed National Medical Center now.

"We are proposing the use of skin as an agricultural land where you can essentially grow any cell of interest," Sen said.

"What's even more exciting is that it not only works on the skin, but on any type of tissue," Sen said. In fact, researchers were able to grow brain cells on the skin surface of a mouse, harvest them, then inject them into the mouse's injured brain. Just a few weeks after having a stroke, brain function in the mouse was restored, and it was healed.

Because the technique uses a patient's own cells and does not rely on medication, researchers expect it to be approved for human trials within a year.

Psychology of Self Esteem: Impact of Social Media on Health
Thomas DeLauer

http://ThomasDeLauer.com

Psychology of Self Esteem: Impact of Social Media on Health

Study

Conducted by a behavioral psychologist, Clarissa Silva, for The Huffington Post

A in-depth interview with men and women, ranging from ages 28-73, that are active social media users, and found that:

60% of people using social media reported that it has impacted their self-esteem in a negative way, 50% reported social media having negative effects on their relationships, and 80% reported that is easier to be deceived by others through their sharing on social media

Social Comparison Theory

Humans are social creatures by nature and as social creatures, comparison to others is inevitable - People use social comparisons to validate their own lives, sometimes unknowingly

The social comparison theory describes how people self-evaluate themselves based on social comparisons to others and encompasses the idea that individuals have a drive to gain accurate self-evaluations about themselves through the comparison of others

With the emergence of so many different types of social media, platforms for social comparison are increasing

Instead of just being able to compare oneself to a person standing in the same room, there are now many social media outlets to exacerbate comparisons with millions of people

Creating Perfect Illusions

Paradox Effect

The paradox effect involves creating the illusion of having more social engagement, social capital, and popularity, but masking one’s true persona - with social media, we are creating an illusion of a life that isn’t real through our online profiles

The person you portray on social media and the true you, can create a double consciousness - Your self on social media is constantly seeking more validation through electronic likes, not life

Social media users forget to take into account that a lot of what they are seeing is carefully orchestrated , fake - It's not real life.

Everyone, friends, family, and ourselves tend to only post the best versions of ourselves and our lives

The post you see is most likely the best out of a shoot of 100 - people create perfect illusions of themselves online because they seek attention and want to be viewed positively.

No one’s true, unaltered life is ever accurately represented on social media

“Likes”

Social media becomes an extension of our identity - That makes our posts, pictures, and activities like virtual possessions or pieces of ourselves. make perfect photos, increase our popularity, have the nicest profile, and get the most views and likes

Makes us feel anxiety over how many likes we get after we post a picture - When we post something that doesn't get a lot of likes, we can feel rejected, which causes our self-worth to take a hit

Getting more “likes” than someone else will cause positive feelings of self-worth, while getting fewer “likes” will cause negative feelings of self-worth. A “like” occurs when - and is a way for - an individual to communicate their approval - like an easier visual of approval

Interruption of Life

The good, healthy things about life, like hanging out with friends and family, learning something new in school, watching your kids in a play, or seeing something beautiful in nature, are often interrupted by our social media lives

We are not fully engaged in the healthy activities of life because we want to document them to make us look interesting on social media and we become detached from reality

My Top 7 Healthy Coffee Creamer Substitutes - Boost Testosterone & Burn Fat
Seniority Health


Published on Dec 20, 2017
Get In Shape Without The Gym: http://go.seniorityhealth.com/testmbd8d

Good Morning guys, Seniority Health!

Toby here, I’m just enjoying some morning coffee like a lot of you guys out there are probably doing too.

And, like most guys out there, I used to always put in cream and sugar - it was a no-brainer… But, when was the last time you looked at the ingredients in those creamers?

Look at this - you see that right here? That’s soy… And if you haven’t heard me tell you this a million times over, soy is estrogenic - meaning it literally kills your testosterone.

And while cream and sugar is better than artificial creamers, it still makes your coffee unhealthy. If you can learn how to love black coffee, it’ll tremendously help you to lose fat.

I challenge you to start using these creamer alternatives in your coffee for the next week

First thing I have here is Cinnamon.

If you want to maximize flavor without adding extra calories, cinnamon is a top-notch add-in. Brew your coffee with a cinnamon stick so the jazzed-up spice has time to infuse, or add a dash to your cup to enjoy your own version of a holiday specialty drink sans all the sugar. According to research from the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, it’s packed with manganese, iron, and calcium and has been known to reduce inflammation, help lower sugar and triglyceride levels in the blood, soothe nausea, and aid in fat burning.

Next we have some Vanilla Extract.

If you love the taste of coffee creamers, but don’t love all the processed sugar and added fat, try vanilla extract or vanilla bean for a hit of flavor. Add a few drops of pure extract to your pot of coffee or add a vanilla bean to your coffee grounds so the flavor infuses before you brew. It’s known for being a brain superfood in its ability to boost mental performance, mood, and overall brain health. Vanilla is also used to calm stomach aches (due to hunger pangs and digestion), reduce joint pain, relieve stress, even cure male impotency.

#3 on the list is Unsweetened Coconut Milk

Unsweetened coconut milk is the perfect add-in if you’re lactose intolerant, cutting out dairy for dietary purposes (i.e. the Paleo diet), or just want a low-calorie milk substitute course coconut milk adds a light coconut flavor to coffee and lightens up your brew, but it's also closest in texture to whole milk. You can combine the vanilla extract with the coconut milk to create a homemade, lower calorie creamer.

Now, here we have some Ground Ginger.

You might not use ginger a lot in everyday cooking, but think about it this way: If you like gingerbread, you’ll love ginger coffee. Add a few slices of fresh ginger root or a couple tablespoons (or teaspoons depending on your container) of ginger powder to your coffee grounds. Aside from treating gas and bloating, ginger root can also help soothe sore throats and colds, ease the pain from arthritis, and reduce inflammation, lowering your risk for prostate cancer, according to research published in Herbal Medicine.

With the holidays coming up, we have some Peppermint Oil here.

Add peppermint oil extract to your brew, but add sparingly; peppermint can be overbearing in high amounts. You may not associate peppermint oil with health benefits, but it contains a bevy of vitamins and minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, and vitamins A and C.

Next-to-last is some Maple Extract.

Try adding a bit of maple extract to your coffee grounds for a sweet kick. The extract is lower in sugar and not nearly as thick as natural maple syrup, so you get all the flavor you love without the sticky mess.

Last, but not least, is Raw Cacao Powder.

Add about one teaspoon of raw ground cacao powder to the bottom of your cup before brewing, or purchase cocoa beans and grind them with your go-to coffee beans to create your own specialized grounds. Research published in the journal Circulation also found cocoa to have anti-inflammatory benefits, which have a beneficial effect on insulin resistance, and blood platelet function.

There you have it, fellas. My Top 7 Coffee Creamer Substitutes, Head out and grab a few that caught your eye, and for the next week, only use those instead of that test-killing creamer you may have been using.

Make sure to “LIKE” and “SHARE” this video as well, and hit the “SUBSCRIBE” button so you can see what I have in store for you next week.

This is Toby, and remember - you’re never too old, and it’s never too late.

I’ll see you next week.

What Fasting Does to Your Immune System - Superhero Cells

What Fasting Does to Your Immune System - Superhero Cells: Thomas DeLauer

Cell Regeneration

A study from USC found that prolonged fasting (2-3 days) can reset and regenerate the immune system - resulted in the depletion of white blood cells and triggered stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells

Found that white blood cells are broken down during fasting, which in turn forces the stem cells in your body to produce more (1)

Insulin and Immune Health

People with insulin resistance have cells throughout their bodies that don’t use insulin effectively - means the cells have trouble absorbing glucose, which causes a buildup of sugar in their blood.

Research from the Journal of Immunology found that high levels of insulin prevent a type of immune cell called regulatory T cells – or Tregs – from doing their job to suppress inflammation

T cell, also called T lymphocyte, type of leukocyte (white blood cell) that is an essential part of the immune system - originate in the bone marrow and mature in the thymus (2)

Fasting and Insulin

When you fast for an extended period of time, the fat deposits that have accumulated over time become the fuel that cells need to operate. As a result, the size of the excess fat droplet gets smaller over time.

As the size of the lipid droplet in muscle and liver cells decrease, those cells become more responsive to insulin

Autophagy

Autophagy is a natural process in which your body removes toxins and estrogenic chemicals and recycles damaged cell components

In the brain, upregulation of autophagy is strongly neuroprotective while disruption of autophagy causes neurodegeneration.

In the liver, upregulation of autophagy increases lipolysis (fat usage) and insulin sensitivity, while disruption of autophagy leads to prediabetes and metabolic syndrome (3,4)

Study

A study looking at liver cells found that the number of autophagosomes increased 300% after 24 hours of fasting, and a further 30% around 48 hours of fasting - began to decline after 48 hours (5)

Ketone Production and Inflammation

The body begins, on average, burning ketones between 24-48 hours of fasting - BHB, in particular, has been found to benefit the immune system

A study from the Yale School of Medicine found that exposing human immune cells to BHB following 2 days of fasting resulted in a reduced inflammatory response

BHB blocks NLRP3 inflammasome by preventing K(+) efflux and reducing ASC oligomerization and speck formation - potassium efflux, ASC, and speck formation are common triggers of NLRP3 (6,7)

Digestive Health

Fasting acts as a “digestive reset” by giving the digestive tract time to rest from breaking down and absorbing food and helps it strengthen its mucosal lining - About 65% of the body's energy must be directed to the digestive organs after a meal

This reduces intestinal inflammation and improves motility - leads to better nutrient absorption and improved bowel movement

Drink This At Night Time Turmeric Drink To Detox & Burn Belly Fat Fast
Seniority Health


Published on Jan 24, 2018
Eliminate Belly Fat Fast: https://go.seniorityhealth.com/testm4e0b

How amazing would it be if you could lose weight quickly with one drink? It may be hard to believe, but this drink is very easy to make, and has been shown to help in a short amount of time, if you drink it all the time.

By drinking just one glass of this juice before bed, you will lower your fat levels- especially your belly fat. If you drink it every night, and after waking up you do some cardio workouts for about 30 minutes, you will see it get better in just a few days.

Check out these great ingredients we’re about to make this solid fat loss drink with:

We have: Lemon, Cucumber, Apple, Ginger, Turmeric, and Water - That’s it!

It’s not unusual for fat to form while you’re sleeping. Why? Because when you go to sleep, your body doesn’t break down materials as fast. The ingredients in this drink will help your body break down materials faster, so that it will continue burning fat while you sleep.

How is this possible? Because the ingredients in this drink are all shown to help speed up the metabolism, so when you drink it before you go to bed, your body keeps breaking things down quickly.

First we have lemon juice. Lemons are perfect for flushing out toxins that have built up over time in the body. When you drink lemon juice, the detoxifying process will then allow you to better mobilize and eliminate body fat.

Then we have cucumbers. One full cucumber has just 45 calories and they are full of fiber and water - two things that are important for burning fat. Not to mention they are refreshing and will give the drink a great taste.

Next we have a whole apple - cored and quartered. Remember to leave the peels on because they contain 2−6 times more nutrients and insoluble fiber than the flesh of apples themselves.

The touch of ginger will help the body break down materials faster and help remedy constipation. two things that are very powerful for fighting off that belly fat you don’t want. Ginger may play a role in the treatment of diabetes as well, due to its manganese and magnesium content. The University of Maryland Medical Center suggests that these two minerals help to regulate blood sugar in both diabetic and non-diabetic men, with blood concentrations of these minerals lower than average in people with diabetes.

The last crucial ingredient, besides water, is Turmeric. Turmeric contains a substance known as lipopolysaccharide, which helps stimulate the body’s immune system. Its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agents also help strengthen the immune system. The anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin found in turmeric also lowers the chances of developing ulcers, is useful for constipation and irritable bowel syndrome.

Sip this healthy drink before bed and you’ll wake up feeling lighter and more energetic.

With these simple ingredients, which you can pick up at your grocery store, you can make this weight loss drink in no time.

Ingredients:
1/2 lemon - juiced
1 cucumber
1 apple - chopped into pieces
1 tablespoon of grated ginger
1 teaspoon of turmeric
½ glass of water

Servings: 2

Add the ingredients together in a blender and hit the on switch.

Lower Back Pain & Fat Gain: Text Neck - Thomas DeLauer

The human head weighs about 12lbs, but as the neck bends forward and down, the weight on the cervical spine begins to increase

At a 15-degree angle, this weight is about 27 pounds, at 30 degrees it’s 40 pounds, at 45 degrees it’s 49 pounds, and at 60 degrees it’s 60 pounds

64% of American adults use smartphones and smartphone users - according to research from the National Library of Medicine spend an average of up to 4 hours per day hunched over, reading emails, sending texts, etc. - equates to about 1,400 hours per year that people are putting stress on their spines (1)

Posture

Text neck places a great deal of stress on the entire posterior aspect of the C-spine

The anterior aspect of the spine is compressed, adding pressure on the intervertebral disc - this increased pressure inside the disc can lead to pain and/or damage to the annular wall

The “hunched” posture puts the scapulae (shoulder blades) in a position that places the scapulae stabilizing muscles on a prolonged stretch and eventually weakens them (2)

Arhritis

With weakened, stretched out and loose ligaments, the vertebrae move more than normal, putting more pressure on the discs between the vertebrae.

Sometimes they move out of normal position. This is called subluxation. This process leads to degeneration of the discs as well as degeneration where the different vertebrae meet, called the facet joint.

Text neck with this forward head posture accelerates the aging and degeneration of the intervertebral joints, resulting in degenerative joint disease of the cervical spine. (3)

“Creep”

When spinal tissues are exposed to continued compression or stress, they deform and go through a transformation that can become permanent

This process is called “creep” - a medical condition that results from the elongation of the ligaments that hold our bones together due to long-term tension upon them

This can be caused by various types of bad posture, including the forward head posture involved in text neck - if this goes on for too long, the ligaments will stretch to the point of no return.

In our neck, we have seven vertebrae that are held together by ligaments. Text neck causes these ligaments to get too loose, to the point where they can no longer hold these seven vertebrae together.

The bones shift and can pinch other nearby structures causing some of the symptoms of text neck. Since the ligaments aren’t able to hold the bones together, the muscles will try to this job (3)

Additional

Research has shown that it can reduce lung capacity by as much as 30% and sitting in a slumped position restricts your lungs’ ability to expand, impairing your lung capacity

Inhaling less oxygen means your heart needs to pump harder to distribute more oxygen-carrying blood through your body (1,4)
Solutions

Simple Alterations

Adjust your monitor, desk and chair height so that your head is in a neutral position with your monitor at eye-level

Take frequent breaks from position to give your posture a rest

Exercises

Chin Tucks

Chin tucks strengthen the neck muscles and help you pull your head back into alignment

Shoulder Blade Pinches

Shoulder blade pinches help to strengthen the muscles of the upper back, which tend to get lengthened and weakened when slouched

Foam Roll

Foam rolling (can also be referred to as a cervical roll) releases tension through your mid - to upper back (5,6)

Boy! Things got all shuffled around and I wondered what happened to this thread...


Anyway, as if anyone didn't know, BIG pharma funding for med education:

Authors of premier medical textbook didn't disclose $11 million in industry payments
Adam Marcus and Ivan Oransky
Stat News
Tue, 06 Mar 2018 05:53 UTC



1-2: Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, Twentieth Edition (Vol.1 & Vol.2) Hardcover, to be released this year for $224.10
It's a textbook that has graced the shelves of untold thousands of medical students going back decades. Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, now in its 20th edition, is a must-read for medical students and young internists. It has been called "the most recognized book in all of medicine."

It's also a case study in hidden conflicts of interest. So says a group of researchers who found that Harrison's and several other leading medical texts failed to disclose financial interests the authors had in the subject matter as well as payments they'd accepted from industry groups.

According to the study, authors for Harrison's received more than $11 million between 2009 and 2013 from makers of drugs and medical devices - not a penny of which was disclosed to readers. One author, a physician, during that period received nearly $870,000 in funding, including for research, according to ProPublica's Dollars For Docs database of payments to doctors from drug companies.

Many Harrison's authors also hold patents in their fields - as many as 23, in one case - another potential conflict of interest that again the books do not disclose to readers.

"These findings indicate that full transparency of [author conflicts] should become a standard practice among the authors of biomedical educational materials," according to the authors, whose study appears in the journal AJOB Empirical Bioethics.

McGraw-Hill, which publishes Harrison's, did not respond to STAT's requests for comment.

Financial disclosures have become de rigueur in scientific journals, where many of Harrison's authors also publish and are subject to guidelines for such disclosures. Textbooks, however, have typically not required disclosures - and that means they've fallen even more behind standard practices.

The researchers, led by Brian Piper, a neuroscientist at the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine in Scranton, Pa., acknowledge that simply looking at patent awards and fees from biomedical companies doesn't prove the existence of biased work. But they note that medical textbooks are enormously influential due to their perceived authority and the wide readership they receive.

'We were not surprised by these findings'

It's not the first time Piper has looked at conflicts of interest in textbooks. In 2015, he and colleagues published a paper finding the same problem in pharmacology textbooks.

"Sadly, after six years doing these types of studies, we were not surprised by these findings," Piper told STAT about his newest study. "However, we continue to be surprised that the publishers and authors of medical textbooks do not have the same transparency standards about conflicts of interest that have become widely accepted for clinical trials and other primary sources."

Some of the potential problems that these conflicts could present occur when textbooks recommend certain treatments, Piper said.

Studies have shown that doctors who take more money - or even free meals - from drug companies are more likely to prescribe brand-name medications than their colleagues who earn less from industry. And in general, it stands to reason that authors who are comfortable with industry funding would be more likely to think of drug treatments than of treatments that might not benefit pharmaceutical companies' bottom lines.

Piper and his colleagues recommend that textbook publishers adhere to the same disclosure standards that journals follow, making sure that readers know about relevant financial relationships. Seems reasonable to us.

Until they do, however, fledgling physicians should be on notice that all those pricey tomes they're buying leave plenty unsaid.

The following is a good example of what I call "sales propaganda". The "medical community" wants to increase the use of vaccines. In this particular case the failed and deadly Gardisil vaccine ostensibly against the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which has been proven to have caused numerous deaths...


Is the oral cancer epidemic in men outwitting natural defenses?
Marie McCullough
The Sacramento Bee
Thu, 08 Mar 2018 10:09 UTC


© Richard Dymond / Bradenton Herald
HPV is human papilloma virus which doctors say can cause infections which can lead to adult cancers including cervical, head, throat, neck and others.
Five years ago, when actor Michael Douglas candidly revealed that his throat cancer was linked to having oral sex, two things happened.

He made headlines that mortified his family. And he helped publicize the fact that a pervasive, sexually transmitted virus called HPV was unleashing an epidemic of oral cancer among men.

Since then, scientists have made headway in figuring out why HPV, the human papillomavirus, has this glaring gender bias. Men are four times more likely than women to be diagnosed with oral cancer, a hard-to-detect, hard-to-treat disease that has overtaken cervical cancer as the most common HPV-related malignancy in the United States.

To be sure, changes in sexual norms over the last few generations have played a role in this alarming trend. But research increasingly shows the real problem is something men have practically no control over: their immune response.

Compared with women, men are more likely to get infected with HPV - including "high-risk" cancer-causing strains. They also are less able to wipe out infection on their own, and more likely to get reinfected. The reasons are unclear.

"There is good evidence that men acquire oral infections more readily than women, even if they have similar sex practices," said Ashish A. Deshmukh, a University of Florida HPV researcher. "And more than the acquisition, it's the persistence of the virus. The clearance rate is not that fast in men."

Michael Becker of Yardley has stepped up as the face of this immunological inequity. The 49-year-old former biotech executive is health-conscious, clean-living, happily married for 26 years - and battling terminal oropharyngeal cancer, the medical term for malignancies in parts of the mouth and throat.

He's also battling the misconceptions and ignorance that keep too many parents from protecting their pubescent children - especially boys - against HPV-driven cancers. Two shots. That's all it takes for the leading vaccine, Gardasil, to prevent most cervical cancers, less common genital malignancies, and the disease that is killing Becker.

"I can't tell you how many emails I got from parents after the CBS segment," he said, referring to a national television interview last month. "They said, 'What do you mean this vaccine is for boys?' and 'What do you mean oral cancer incidence has eclipsed cervical cancer?'"

HPV is a family of more than 100 virus types that can live in the flat, thin cells on the surface of the skin, cervix, vagina, anus, vulva, penis, mouth and throat.

The virus is spread through contact with infected skin, mucous membranes, and bodily fluids. Some types can be passed during intercourse or - as Douglas pointed out - oral sex.

While virtually all sexually active people will get infected at some point, the virus is usually wiped out by the immune system without so much as a symptom.

But not always.

In the cervix, persistent infection with high-risk HPV types can lead to precancerous changes that, left alone, slowly turn malignant. Fortunately, the Pap smear enables the detection and removal of abnormal cells before cancer develops. What's more, age-related changes in cervical cells reduce the risk that HPV will take hold there as women get older.

No such screening test exists for oropharyngeal sites - the tongue, soft palate, tonsils, the throat behind the nasal cavity - and symptoms usually don't appear until cancer is advanced. Becker, for example, had metastatic disease by the time he noticed a lump under his jaw line in late 2015.

Traditionally, smoking and heavy alcohol use are the big risk factors for oral cancer, but the non-HPV tumors linked to these bad habits have been declining in recent years.

HPV-related tumors, in contrast, have increased more than 300 percent over the last 20 years. The virus is now found in 70 percent of all new oral cancers.

About 13,200 new HPV oral cancers are diagnosed in U.S. men each year, compared with 3,200 in women, according to federal data. Treatment - surgery, chemotherapy, radiation - can have disfiguring, disabling side effects. About half of late-stage patients die within five years.

Oral HPV infection rates are skewed by gender, just like the resulting cancers. The latest national estimates of this disparity, published in October, come from Deshmukh and his University of Florida colleagues. They used a federal health survey that collected DNA specimens to estimate that 7.3 percent of men and 1.4 percent of women have oral infections with high-risk HPV types. That translates to 7 million men and 1.4 million women.

The chance of oral infection increases for women as well as men who have simultaneous genital HPV infections or a history of many sex partners, but male infection rates still far surpass female rates.

Patti Gravitt, an HPV researcher at George Washington University, believes these estimates are a bit oversimplified because women counted as uninfected may actually have undetectably low virus levels, or HPV may be hiding in a dormant state in their cells.

Still, Gravitt said the study is in line with others that suggest "men are more susceptible to HPV viral infection than women."

In women, an HPV infection usually sets off the body's defense mechanisms. The immune system makes antibodies that kill off the invader, then immune cells remain on guard, ready to attack if the virus reappears.

But in men, something goes awry. The HIM study - for HPV in Men - documented this by collecting genital, anal, and oral samples from 4,100 unvaccinated men in Florida, Mexico and Brazil between 2005 and 2009. The samples were tested for the presence of two high-risk HPV types and two that cause genital warts.

Among 384 men who developed infections during a 24-month period, only 8 percent produced antibodies. But this response rate varied depending on the site of infection; none of the small number of orally infected men produced antibodies.

Rather than putting the immune system on guard and protecting men from the virus, infection sharply increased the chance of getting infected again with the exact same HPV type. And many men who got reinfected were celibate at the time.

How could this be? Anna R. Giuliano, the researcher at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Fla., who led the HIM study, said recurring infections may be due to reactivation of dormant virus, or to auto-inoculation - the man spreads infection from one part of his body to another. Or to something else entirely.


While the scientific understanding of this puzzle is evolving, one implication is clear. "HPV vaccination is the only reliable method to ensure immune protection against new HPV infections and subsequent disease in males," Giuliano and her co-authors declared in a recent paper.
