Abstract

The association of carcinoma of the uterine cervix with human papillomavirus indicates that vaccine strategies which target the virus could be useful in the control of disease progression. Recent advances have centered on directing the immune response to prevention of infection, to virus-infected (but nontransformed) cells and to virally transformed cells, with favourable results.
