    HPV Incidence and Clearance in Gay Men With vs Without HIV
    HPV Incidence and Clearance in Gay Men With vs Without HIV Figure 1. A study comparing gay men with versus without HIV infection found that those with HIV had higher rates of new anal HPV-16 (the HPV type most often linked to anal cancer), as well as higher rates of all high-risk (cancer-causing) anal HPV types and all high-risk penile HPV types. Men with HIV had 30% lower clearance of all anal high-risk HPV types than men without HIV.
