New Research Shows HPV Vaccine Reduces Cervical Pre-Cancers In Young Women

New research shows the HPV vaccine is efficacious in reducing cervical pre-cancers among young women throughout a population. Cosette Wheeler, PhD, at the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center, led the research team and the efforts of the New Mexico HPV Pap Registry, the data source used in the study. The researchers found that among women who were 15 to 19 years old at the time of a diagnostic cervical biopsy, the incidence rate of cervical abnormalities decreased between 2007 and 2014.
