HERNANDEZ MENENDEZ, Maité; RIOS HERNANDEZ, María de los Ángeles; AGUILAR VELA DE ORO, Orlando  y  TORRES CHAVEZ, Andrés. Updating of the human papillomavirus therapeutics. Conventional therapy. Rev cubana med [online]. 2004, vol.43, n.1. ISSN 0034-7523.

It has been proved that the human papilloma virus is infecting a great number of persons in the world. It is associated with benign, premalignant and malignant lesions of different localizations. Approximately 120 types of HPV infecting the human being (a group of them is closely associated with the appearance and development of cancer) are known. Even though there are various treatments to eliminate the different lesions caused by this virus, a consensus on therapeutics has not been reached. This is the first paper of a series of 3 publications. Conventional treatments used to fight HPV, such as the physical elimination of the lesions, the use of citotoxic agents, etc., were approached. In the second part, the antivirals and the most used immunomodulatory substances to treat this virus were summarized. In the third and last part, the prophylactic vaccines, as well as the promising therapeutic vaccines, were dealt with.

Palabras clave : HPV; therapy; condyloma; cancer.
