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 greatinterest 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 how cervical 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 HPVvaccines and future developments.
Peter L. Stern is Professor of Immunology at the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research, University of Manchester, Manchester, UK. Henry C. Kitchener is Professor of Gynaecological Oncology at St Mary's Hospital, University of Manchester, Manchester, UK.
