Some fairly good news in the prevention of cervical cancer.
Cervical Cancer Vaccination. It doesn't prevent all forms of the disease but it has proven effective in cases related to HPV. They aren't sure if it will be effective against women who already have HPV but they are still optomistic (at the very least it will provide greater understanding of the causitive agents involved.). Just a heads up for all of you with or who are planning to have daughters. Merck is saying that it proves most effective when given at an age before sexual maturity and/or activity. It is still unkown as to how long the vaccination works or if boosters will help it extend the efficacy.
As some may or may not know, this sort of relates to my field of study (not gynecology) in cytotechnology. Go Team Eradication!
