Description:

What is papillomavirus or HPV?

This virus, which affects the epithelium of the cervix and the genital organs, sometimes causes lesions that can degenerate into cancer. The infection generally occurs during early sexual activity and the majority of women develop antibodies to the virus naturally.

Thanks to screening, this fatal disease has been transformed into a rare pathology. In this book, Dr. Joseph Monsonego reviews current knowledge about and the future prospects for papillomavirus infection and its consequences. He demystifies the new issues and new practices arising in the era of vaccination, thus answering the questions women are asking themselves: the importance of screening, treatments, the place of vaccination in the prevention process. In presenting this major scientific progress, Dr. Monsonego delivers an amazing message of hope in the fight against cervical cancer and, in addition, places society squarely before its responsibilities.
