Persistent infection with oncogenic human papillomavirus (HPV) leads to the development of many cervical cancers, as well as cancers of other anatomic locations. Among the more than 150 types of HPV, 13 have been identified as carcinogenic; types 16 and 18 are responsible for 70% of invasive cervical cancer.
