Abstract Therapeutic vaccines developed to target the papillomavirus antigens that are expressed by cervical cancer induce immune responses, but have yet to show clinical efficacy. Transplantable tumour models expressing human papillomavirus antigens do not predict vaccine outcome in the clinic. Understanding how immune responses are influenced in a tumour antigen experienced host, and what surrogate marker or markers reflect the potential efficacy of therapeutic vaccines in the clinic, will be necessary to provide new approaches to immunotherapy for cervical cancer.
