A preventive vaccine against cancer of the cervix has confirmed its effectiveness. Directed against the virus most frequently involved, it could help prevent the development of 70 % of these cancers worldwide. With the new test will begin, it is likely that a vaccine against cancer of the cervix is available for 2006.
