Cervical cancer is common among Kenyan women and is caused by oncogenic human papillomaviruses (HR-HPV). Identification of factors that increase HR-HPV persistence is critically important. Kenyan women exposed to aflatoxin have an increased risk of cervical HR-HPV detection. This analysis was performed to examine associations between aflatoxin and HR-HPV persistence.
