    Ron,
    Help me, but does this study show that circumcision is not an effective tool to reduce the prevalence of HPV in men? That is how I am reading it.
    Thanks,

      Bingo!

      From the abstract:

      Conclusions:
      This study shows no overall association between MC and genital HPV infections in men, except forcertain non-oncogenic {non-cancer-causing} HPV types for which a weak association was found.

        If you want the bottom line of what a study found, read the conclusion in the abstract.
