Resumo

Persistent infection by human papillomavirus (HPV) is associated with cervical carcinogenesis. However, only the presence of HPV is insufficient for complete malignant transformation. Cofactors, such as prolonged use of oral contraceptives, multiparity, early onset of sexual activity, multiple partners, smoking, other sexually transmitted infections and nutritional factors, as low levels of folate, may be required for progression of viral infection to cancer. The role of micronutrients in malignant transformation of cervical tissue is controversial.
