New Study Finds Link Between HPV and Heart Disease in Women

A new study, to be published in the November, 2011 issue of the Journal of of the American College of Cardiology, found evidence of a link between human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and heart disease in women who have no other risk factors.

While the researchers have not confirmed this link and have not established whether or not HPV may cause heart disease, they did see that “oncogenic HPV types were strongly associated with CVD.”

The full study results will be out next month in JACC, but to read the related news release from Asia One News, click HERE.
