    Sammanfattning : Background: Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted DNA virus that causes several human cancers, notably cervical and other anogenital cancers. The antibody response to this virus is of interest both because knowledge of the antigenic structures that induce protective immunity forms the basis for prophylactic vaccine development and because it forms the basis of seroepidemiology, the method of choice for studies of HPV infectivity, of HPV spread in populations and of cancer risks following HPV exposure.
