Cervical cancer is the second most common form of cancer found in
women and it is responsible for more than a quarter of a million
deaths worldwide each year. With approximately 70% of cervical
cancers now known to be caused by two types of the human papilloma
virus (HPV), there is great interest surrounding the approval of
the first preventative vaccines for clinical use. Despite this
excitement, many questions remain about how the new vaccines should
best be implemented and howcervical cancer screening will change
following vaccination.Part of the Oxford Oncology Library series,
this practical pocketbook provides an overview of the role of HPV
in the pathology of cervical cancer and its current screening and
management, the principles of immune control of HPV infection in
cervical cancer, and the challenges of implementing HPV vaccines
and future developments.
