The first and main question is - is HPV type 16 treated? The second and also important question - what to do with HPV 16?
There is no radical therapy for papillomavirus, as there is nothing to release the body from its presence, and only diseases that are involved in the development of HPV of this type are subject to treatment.
In 2012, the European guidelines for the treatment of anogenital warts (condylomata acuminata) were published, and it was stressed that only surgical treatment (removal of papillomas and genital warts by surgery) produced a positive result in almost all patients.
In addition to surgical resection of neoplasias, hardware methods are used: radio-wave excision, diathermocoagulation, laser ablation, cryodestruction. Read more in the material - Removal of genital warts
A cauterization of erosion with HPV 16 is performed in the same way as in the absence of this infection, see - Cauterization of cervical erosion
Algorithms and existing treatment regimens for HPV 16 include drug therapy. And below will be called the main drugs that are most often used in clinical practice.
To reduce the oncogenic load and activate cellular immunity (T-lymphocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, etc.), immunomodulators are prescribed for HPV 16-preparations containing interferon or its analogues.
It stimulates the synthesis of endogenous leukocyte α, β and γ-interferons alloferon or Allokin alfa. It is administered subcutaneously - 1 mg every two days. In total, such injections with HPV 16 do not more than nine times (usually limited to six injections), but if necessary, after a short break, the course of treatment can be repeated. This remedy is not used for children, pregnant and lactating, and also if there are diseases of an autoimmune nature.
Immunomodulating drug Isoprinosin (other trade names - Pranobeks, Groprinosin, Inosin, Novirin) are prescribed two tablets (each 0.5 g) three times a day for two to four weeks. The drug can cause side effects in the form of decreased appetite, headache and joint pain, nausea, abdominal pain, intestinal disorders. Among its contraindications include chronic kidney failure, the presence of stones in the bladder, pregnancy and lactation.
Cycloferon (Neovir) induces the production of interferons by the action of acridoneacetic acid. Produced in the form of tablets, solution for injection and liniment. Tablets are used one to two times a day (before meals) for three weeks. The course of injections (in / in or / m) is prescribed for severe lesions, usually one injection per day. The drug is not used for cirrhosis and pregnancy. Liniment is used topically: by instillation into the urethra or into the vagina.
To the means, increasing the immunity, includes Polyoxidonium (Azoxime bromide) - lyophilizate for the preparation of solution (for IM and / or in administration), vaginal suppository -
Adults (except pregnant women) are injected with HPV 16 twice a week or every other day (one injection in a single dose of 6 mg). Children, the dose of Polyoxidonium is calculated at the rate of 0.1 mg per kilogram of weight; injected once during the day, the course of treatment - 7-10 injections. The vaginal suppository is used in the evening (before bedtime - one suppository per day for a decade).
But the remedy Amiksin is used to prevent influenza and reduce the manifestations of ARI, but DNA viruses are not prescribed.
Candles, gel and injection solution of Panavir contain an extract of potato sprouts: the agent is declared to be antiviral and at the same time immunomodulating (in International Pharmacopoeia is not registered).
Dried fruits with green tea extract are not medicines, which, according to the description, are recommended for the prevention of cancer, as well as Indinol (Indole-3-carbinol) containing indole derivatives obtained from broccoli.
Outer - with superficially located anogenital warts of a small size - apply the solution of Podophyllotoxin (Podophilox, Condilin), and Keravort cream (Imiquimod) - once a day every night for a month; if necessary, repeated courses of treatment should take a break. Both drugs are contraindicated in children and pregnant women.
A very common remedy for topical application - vaginal and rectal suppositories from HPV 16:
Genferon (with α2-interferon) - one suppository invaginally (men - rectally);
Viferon (with the interferon, vitamins C and E);
Vitaferon (with interferon and vitamin C), etc. More information in the article - Suppositories from HPV
But vaginal capsules (not candles) Polizhinaks are designed to treat candidiasis and bacterial infections of the vagina, they are useless in viruses.
Alternative treatment of HPV 16
What does alternative treatment for HPV 16 recommend? Garlic and iodine moxibustion; lubricating them with tincture of propolis with the addition of fresh onion juice; application of a concentrated solution of baking soda or a tincture of green peel of walnuts on kerosene.
It is claimed that external peroxide of hydrogen from HPV 16 or 10% aqueous ammonia (liquid ammonia) can help.
You can try and treat herbs, for example, 5-6 times during the day, lubricate the warts celandine (fresh juice). And since the researchers found immunoregulatory activity and the ability to increase the synthesis of interferon of one of the licorice species - Glycyrrhiza uralensis, it is advised to take an aqueous extract of the root of this plant. In addition, glycyrrhizic acid is present in licorice, which stops the growth of pathogenic bacteria and viruses.
