About this book


HPV infections and their clinical consequences are a major disease burden. This book aims to provide an updated comprehensive summary of the available data in this multidisciplinary field. The different contributing experts, using the most recent information, provide updated in depth reviews on  different aspects of HPV infections.

The reader will discover how quickly interesting new data has been generated, not only on the immune-biology of this infection, but also on the more clinical aspects like the diagnostic approaches and techniques, the success of primary and secondary prevention, the follow-up in vaccinated cohorts or individuals, and the various treatment options.



“[Dr. Franco Borruto]… has focused on the prevention of carcinoma of the cervix  and, in particular, HPV vaccination, divulgating in different parts of the world its use in young women. And the result of this enormous labour is this magnificent book, presented here today, edited together with Prof. Marc De Ridder, a famous immunologist of world-wide renown that work in Brussels, Belgium. This work, this book, has involved the collaboration of the world’s leading experts on the issue. I am sure that, in the field of the carcinoma of the cervix prevention, this book will mark a fundamental milestone.” —Prof. José M. Carrera, President of Matres Mundi, Secretary General of International Academy of Perinatal Medicine
