The causal relation between HPV and cervical cancer
F X Bosch et al

The causal role of HPV infections in cervical cancer has been documented beyond reasonable doubt. It is the right time for medical societies and public health regulators to consider this evidence and to define its preventive and clinical implications. A comprehensive review of key studies and results is presented in this article.

This review will be published in the April issue of the Journal of Clinical Pathology, 2002 Vol 55, Issue 4.
