Human Papillomaviruses

International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans, No. 64, 1995

428 pp. 29.3 MB(!)

This volume of the IARC Monographs 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. Although investigations of cervical cancer are most abundant, the report also considers the possible involvement of HPV infection in cancers at other sites, including the vulva, anus, skin, and aerodigestive tract.
