Abstract

The clearly defined causation by papillomavirus (HPV) and precursor lesions of cervical cancer have made this cancer largely preventable through Pap screening programs, and now by vaccination with Gardasil. This represents an important public health success story and here the authors summarize the potential impact of preventive HPV vaccination and some of the outstanding questions.
