Abstract

Human papillomavirus (HPV) comprises a group of heterogeneous viruses containing many genotypes that can be divided into high-risk and low-risk types, depending on their association with disease. Some 70 HPV types that can infect epithelial surfaces differentially have been identified, including a number that have been implicated in the aetiology of cervical cancer, the most common form of malignant tumour in women worldwide.
