Human Papillomavirus and Related Diseases

From Bench to Bedside - A Diagnostic and Preventive Perspective

Edited by Davy Vanden Broeck

Ghent University, Belgium

Cervical cancer is the second most prevalent cancer among women worldwide, and infection with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) has been identified as the causal agent for this condition. The natural history of cervical cancer is characterized by slow disease progression, rendering the condition in essence preventable and even treatable when diagnosed in early stages.
