In clinical trials, both vaccines have shown some degree of crossprotection against persistent infection

While most of the HPV infections disappear naturally, persistent infection
with oncogenic HPV will definitely lead to cervical cancer.
Additionally 80% of women acquire the infection in their lifetime, however persistent infection

A persistent infection
with certain strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV) raises the risk of cervical cancer, but initial studies of HPV testing targeted adolescent girls and young women.
In a small subset of women persistent infection
with hrHPV types may lead to integration of viral DNA into the host cell DNA, which could lead to the development of pre-malignant cervical lesions (low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions/LSIL, high-grade squamous intra-epithelial llesions/HSIL) and eventually to cervical cancer (Figs 2 and 3).
was defined as detection of the same HPV type at two or more consecutive visits that were at least 4 months apart.
