Subjects in the first three treatment groups will get vaccinated with experimental vaccines, pNGVL4a-sig/E7(detox)/HSP70, and TA-HPV, before having a cone or LEEP procedure at week 15. Subjects in treatment group 4 will get imiquimod, which is a cream for enhancing immune responses, applied directly to the lesion, before having a cone or a LEEP procedure at week 15. Subjects in treatment group 5 will get vaccinated and also have the cream on their cervix, before having a cone or a LEEP procedure at week 15. There are study specific blood samples and cervical swabs collected before and after vaccination, and at the time of surgery. The vaccines and the cream are provided in this trial.
