ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV), the sexually transmitted disease that causes cervical cancer. Cervical cancer causes about 250,000 deaths each year, largely in developing countries in which access to medical care is limited. As many as 80% of women will be exposed to HPV at some point in their lives, but many strains of the virus are benign. The vaccine will be the first successful attempt to eliminate a cancer at its source.
