About this book


This book is exceptional in presenting an interdisciplinary approach to the subject of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in the context of head and neck cancer. Leading experts in the field discuss the epidemiology and molecular biology of HPV-positive head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, HPV testing, the nonsurgical and surgical treatment of HPV-positive tumors, predictive factors for outcome and quality of life, and ongoing trials on the effectiveness of vaccination in disease prevention. It also provides recommendations for testing, diagnosis treatment and vaccination. Otolaryngologists, head and neck surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, molecular biologists and pathologists will find this book a valuable resource.
