This volume evaluates the carcinogenic risk to humans posed by infection with human papillomaviruses (HPVs). To date, more than 70 HPV types have been identified, of which over 15 have been reported in cervical cancer biopsies. Worldwide, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women. This book also considers the possible involvement of HPV infection in cancers at other sites of the human body.

From the reviews:
"This book probably includes just about anything one might want to know about papillomaviruses. ... The book is written for individuals in the fields of immunology, infectious disease, virology, microbiology, cell biology, and cancer biology and research whether they are scientists, clinicians, or students. ... All color figures are grouped together in the center of the book and each chapter is well referenced. ... It would be a fine edition to a library collection." (Marion C. Cohen, Doody's Review Service, June, 2008)
