Abstract

Sera from 1483 female subjects in England aged 10-29 years were tested. The age-standardised seroprevalence was 10.7% (95% confidence intervals 9.0-12.3) for human papillomavirus (HPV) 6, 2.7% (1.8-3.6) for HPV 11, 11.9% (10.2-13.6) for HPV 16, 4.7% (3.5-5.8) for HPV 18, and 20.7% (18.6-22.7) for any of the four types.
