PDF - 65K, Hazard ratios for incidence and clearance of HPV infection by race and stratified by number of lifetime female partners.



Background: This analysis assessed the acquisition (incidence) and persistence (clearance) of human papilloma virus (HPV) infection by self-reported race among men in The HPV in Men (HIM) Study, a multinational prospective study of the natural history of genital HPV infections.Methods: Self-reported race was categorized as White, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander (PI), or multiple and mixed race. Genital samples were combined for HPV DNA testing and categorized by any, oncogenic, and non-oncogenic HPV infections.Results: Asian/PI race had significantly the lowest incidence of any, oncogenic, and non-oncogenic HPV infection (P < 0.001). In multivariable analyses, Asian/PI race was associated with a lower probability of acquiring any [HR = 0.63; 95% confidence interval (CI), 0.42–0.95] and non-oncogenic HPV infection (HR = 0.61; 95% CI, 0.40–0.93) when compared to Whites. No significant associations were evident for Asian/PI race for clearance. Multiple and mixed race was significantly associated with lower probability of acquiring non-oncogenic HPV infection (HR = 0.83; 95% CI, 0.69–0.99) and borderline significant associations were observed for any HPV (HR = 0.91) and oncogenic infections (HR = 0.92). Multiple and mixed race was associated with a lower probability of clearing any (HR = 0.92; 95% CI, 0.84–1.00) and oncogenic HPV infections (HR = 0.85; 95% CI, 0.75–0.95).Conclusion: Asian/PI race had the lowest incidence of HPV and exhibited a lower probability of acquiring new HPV infections. Multiple and mixed race had the second lowest incidence of infection and was associated with a lower probability of acquiring and clearing an HPV infection.Impact: Race-specific differences in HPV infection could be due to behavior, innate genetic differences, or circulating intratypic HPV variants.
