Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). More than half of the people sexually active have been infected by HPV. Human Papilloma viruses constitute a group of approximately 150 related viruses. More than 40 of these viruses are spread through sexual contact (oral, vaginal and anal). High risk sero-types of HPV are responsible for many forms of cancer, including cervical cancer (1). Most people do not realize they are infected, but do transmit the infection to others.
