The article discusses a study conducted to test if quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine can prevent HPV infection and other related diseases. The results as stated indicate reduced risk for HPV-related infection and disease of HPV types 6, 11, 16, or 18 in women who received the vaccine but failed to show benefits for HPV types 16 and 18 only. It also states that the use of a composite endpoint limits the evaluation of prevention of infection as compared to prevention of disease.
