Custom-designed for clinicians on the frontline of treatment and prevention of the human papillomavirus (HPV), this stand-alone handbook provides the scientific background needed to understand and administer the new HPV vaccines. Written by some of the discoverers of these vaccines, this accessible text explores the biology and epidemiology of HPV, its diagnosis, screening, prevention, and treatment, and the types of diseases linked to the virus.
