Abstract

Cervical carcinoma is associated with human papillomavirus infection. Proliferation of cancer cells depends on the continual expression of the E6 and E7 viral oncogenes. This article includes treatment strategies that can interfere with expression or function of the proteins and immunotherapeutic approaches that can eliminate cells that express E6 and E7 proteins.
