Prevention of gynaecological cancers: in memory of Mario Sideri

29 Apr 2015
Guest Editors: S Chiocca and MT Sandri

This special issue is dedicated to the memory of Mario Sideri, a leading visionary who understood long before others the importance of HPV in the development of cervical cancer.  The issue reflects Dr Sideri’s dedication to the field of preventive gynaecology and encompasses contributions from many of his colleagues and close friends. It is clear that we live in a very exciting time in the field of cervical cancer and pre-cancer and so we hope this synopsis of where we are today in the field of cervical cancer and its prevention will be a useful reference tool.

Apart from HPV screening and vaccination papers, the special issue touches on the causes of cervical cancer, the biology behind the disease, markers of progression and how to recognise and treat pre-cancerous lesions.

All the articles are available in both Spanish and English.
