Invasive cervix uteri carcinoma is a sexual transmission disease caused by VHP. Among the new prevention and treatment options of uterine neck carcinoma are cytology in liquid medium, HPV DNA test, and preventive and therapeutic vaccines. The preventive vaccines for HPV are based on the production of virus-like particles (VLPs). There are two types of vaccines: a bivalent for HPV 16 and 18, and a tetravalent for HPV 6, 11, 16 and 18. The development of these therapeutic vaccines are still under investigation. With the possibility of cancer vaccination we are facing one of the most important discoveries of the present time medicine.
