Reevaluation of epidemiological data demonstrates that it is consistent with cross-immunity among human papillomavirus types
The Journal of Infectious Diseases, 08/09/2012
Durham DP et al. – This paper demonstrates that cross–immunity between HPV types is consistent with epidemiological data, contrary to previous interpretations. Cross–immunity may cause significant type replacement following vaccination, and therefore should be considered in future vaccine studies and epidemiological models.
