Abstract

Studies of the immunology of papillomavirus infection have come of age. Synthetic virus-like particles have been validated as vaccines for several animal papillomaviruses, and have been used to map the sero-epidemiology of human papillomavirus infection and to define papillomavirus neutralizing antibodies. Induction of cell-mediated immunity to papillomavirus early proteins is poised to become a therapeutic approach to papillomavirus infection. Studies on the immune response to papillomavirus proteins in keratinocytes are shedding light on the immunological consequences of antigen presentation by epithelial cells.
