HPV Prevention

Guest edited by: Dr Silvia de Sanjose

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is a major leading cause of Human Cancer. Through this series we would like to highlight the quality and the breadth of the research being carried out on the Control and Prevention of HPV and HPV related disease. This series aims to bring together a diverse range of HPV related specialities featuring research that has as ultimate goal insights into HPV related disease reduction. Articles can have a wide range of topics such as those of natural history studies, impact of screening interventions or impact of HPV vaccines will be most welcome.

Relevant research papers published in Infectious Agents and Cancer will be added to the series, with commentary to explain their significance, or put them in context for no specialist readers.

The section includes:

  • News on HPV research, highlight of events or articles that deserve particular attention for their relevance or controversy
  • A major research article on HPV with priority for community trials or demonstration projects of preventive strategies
  • A collection of relevant articles that relate to HPV disease reduction.

This collection of articles has not been sponsored and articles have undergone the journal's standard peer-review process and the Guest Editor declares no competing interest.
