Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cervical cancer (CC) represents one of the most common female cancers worldwide, with 80% of cases originating from developing countries. These data are surprising given that CC is the only tumor that has primary and secondary prevention. The WHO has set goals for its elimination by 2030, proposing a vaccination coverage of 90%. In many countries worldwide, the vaccination coverage is well below this set goal. Hence, there is a need to implement vaccination coverage.

This Special Issue aims to provide evidence regarding the use of the HPV vaccine in different settings. Adolescent girls represent the primary target, but its use after excisional or definitive treatments is a trending topic of interest. Furthermore, the tools necessary for its implementation aimed at women of screening age or parents with daughters of vaccination age are topics of crucial interest.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: HPV vaccination coverage in developed and developing countries, HPV vaccination after conization, HPV vaccination after hysterectomy for cervical pathology, the role of HPV vaccination after fertility-sparing treatment, HPV vaccination in male, HPV vaccination in vaginal and vulvar pathology, and HPV genotype distribution in cervical pathology according to age.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
