Abstract

Most of the cervical cancer are caused by human papilloma virus (HPV), but risk associated with the various HPV types has not been adequately assessed. We searched literature from Pubmed, Embase and Medline with terms human papilloma virus, HPV, Cervical cancer, CIN and compiled data on seroepidemiological correlation of HPV in carcinoma cervix. There are 200 types of HPV viruses diagnosed by DNA sequencing. They are widely distributed through-out animal kingdom. It associates with various type of cervical lesion ranging from benign to malignant. The most common types observed among invasive cervical cancer cases were HPV 16 and HPV 18. This information is essential for planning prevention by HPV vaccines and for screening programs based on HPV testing.
