Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)

There is an evidence-based causative relationship between female genital HPV infection (Human Papilloma Virus) and cervical cancer of the uterus (Walboomers et al,1999). It was this evidence that gave the final thrust for creating vaccination against other virulent diseases. What is particular with the HPV vaccine is that, in essence, this is the first vaccine against a malignant disease.
