Despite the substantial efforts made to prevent the disease by early detection, cervical cancer remains a leading cause of mortality among women worldwide. The European Research Organization on Genital Infection and Neoplasia (EUROGIN) pursues a wide variety of educational and training activities, aiming to spread accurate and state-of-the-art information in the field of cervical cancer prevention. The latest outcome of these activities is presented in this book. Providing a concise update of the current knowledge on human papillomavirus (HPV) infections and their intimate link to cervical cancer, the book focuses on five interrelated topics: high- and low-risk HPV infections, methods for HPV detection and use of molecular markers, HPV testing in primary screening and patient management, morphological diagnosis and treatment, as well as prevention of cervical cancer by vaccines. Written by leading international experts, this publication is targeted at a multidisciplinary readership consisting of health care professionals from diverse specialties engaged in the management of HPV-associated diseases.
