Invitation Letter

Dear colleagues,

The year 2007 is a historic year, not just for scientists working in the field of papillomavirus research, but lso for all mankind with the launch of a vaccine against this agent that is etiologically linked to second most prevalent tumor in women worldwide. Even though this is a very important step in the prevention of cervical cancer and the other diseases that are related to papillomavirus infection, the introduction of HPV vaccination has stimulated much debate on many aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of HPV related diseases.

A significant complication is that the HPV vaccines do not protect against all the types involved in cervical cancer development and do not appear to protect women who are currently infected with the HPV types in the vaccine. Therefore, even vaccinated women must continue to attend for regular cervical screening and vaccination programmes must be effectively integrated with organised screening programmes to ensure the maximum protection against cervical cancer. Because of this, cervical cancer prevention now involves multiple disciplines that have not traditionally worked together; paediatricians, vaccinologists, gynaecologists, cytologists, public health officials and screening programmes administrators must all work together in a complex and coordinated fashion.

At the last International Papillomavirus meeting in September of 2006 it was recommended that multidisciplinary conferences on the prevention of HPV related diseases should be organised in all European countries. In response to this call, the Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion, in collaboration with the European Cervical Cancer Association, the Czech Oncological Society, the Czech Society for Epidemiology & Microbiology, the Czech Society of Othorhinolaryngology & Head & Neck Surgery, the Czech Society for Clinical Cytology and the Czech Society of Gene & Cell Therapy & Anti-Cancer Vaccines, all associated in Czech Medical Association JEP are organising a conference on “HPV in Human Pathology” to be held from 1 - 3, May, 2008 in Prague.

The conference will be held in the newly opened Clarion Congress Hotel in Prague, located close to the city centre. The preliminary programme includes plenary lectures on epidemiology, immunology of HPV and HPV related diseases in females and males. These will be followed by blocks of lectures on cytology, pathology, HPV DNA and antibody detection as well as diagnosis and treatment of HPV related diseases. One entire session will be focused on cervical cancer screening programmes and other on primary prevention using prophylactic HPV vaccination.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Prague!
