A V HILL LECTURE - Vaccines: from science to policy
If you have a question about this talk, please contact philosoc.
Human papillomaviruses are responsible for 99% of cervical cancer. The relationship between the host immune response and the virus controls persistence, and hence the oncogenic potential of the agent in the vast majority of individuals. The occasional consequence is the establishment of malignant disease, which in turn requires therapeutic and preventative interventions.
Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz will outline the history of cervical cancer, its diagnosis and treatments over the centuries, and discuss the characteristics of human papillomavirus (HPV). He will consider how the discovery of an effective vaccine led as a matter of public health policy to a mass vaccination programme, and societal reaction.
