Origins of Female Genital Cancer: Virological and Epidemiological Aspects, 1985-04-14 - 1985-04-17

Scope and Contents Cervical cancer remains a major neoplastic cause of death among women worldwide. Identification of its cause would thereby present a major step toward understanding and potentially controlling this important neoplastic disease. Recent advances in molecular virology, in combination with ongoing epidemiological approaches, now seem to make this goal highly feasible. It was thus felt that bringing together the virological, epidemiological, and clinical communities concerned could be...
