HPV infection are one of the most frequent sexual transmitted disease in developed countries today. Infection rate is highest few years after starting sexual activities and reaches frequencies of up to 60% in some populations. Most of this infections remains asymptomatic and are eliminated by the immune system. About 20% of the infected suffer from persistent infection. Here HPV viruses stays in epithelium for several years and can cause high grad precancerous lesions (Dysplasie, cervical intraepithelial Neoplasie, CIN) which can progress to cervical cancer.
Until today more than 100 human papilloma virus types are found and described by sequencing. Most of the are apathogen (low risk types) while some high risk types cause precancerous lesions especially in genital but also in oral regions. More than 90% of Cervical carcinoma are caused by high risk type HPV infections.
