Some resources (like WHO) says that HPV can be cleared by the immune system as the following.


There are many types of HPV, and many do not cause problems. HPV infections usually clear up without any intervention within a few months after acquisition, and about 90% clear within 2 years.

Other resources I looked at about HPV as the following and they mostly have explanation of HPV.

However, they don't specify which HPV types are detectable by the immune system and there is no information whether the clerance is related with the type of HPV. I also Googled for "detectable hpv types by the immune system" but unfortunately couldn't find explicit information.

My HPV Genotyping test resulted in HPV type 6. In this case I wonder which HPV types can be detectable by the immune system to remove it from the body. Is there any information about it?
