Human Papillomavirus: Proving and Using a Viral Cause for Cancer – Original PDF
Human Papillomavirus: Proving and Using a Viral Cause for Cancer presents a steady and massive accumulation of evidence about the role of HPV and prevention of HPV-induced cancer, along with the role and personal commitment of many scientists of different backgrounds in establishing global relevance. This exercise involved years of personal commitment to proving or disproving an idea that aroused initial skepticism, and that still has difficult implications for some. It remains one of the big successes of medicine that exploited both established medical science dating back to the nineteenth century and new molecular genetic science during a time of transition in medicine.
- Presents a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the role of HPV in cancer from those involved in its study
- Includes the way evidence on the role and utility of HPV based prevention has been accumulated over almost 40 years
- Gives a series of vignettes of individual scientists involved in the development of the science of HPV and cancer at different stages and their experiences and reasons for involvement
