SILVER SPRING, Md., Dec. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --The U.S.
The problem of cervical cancer in humans has been considerably reduced by the development of an efficient and cheap vaccine.
University of Manchester scientists have discovered for the first time an important new way in which the human papilloma virus (HPV) triggers cancer in what could lead to new treatments for cervical and mouth cancer.

BURGESS HILL, England, November 24, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- - Landmark Study Confirms Accuracy of Roche's Human Papillomavirus Test for the Detection of Cervical Pre-Cancer Missed by Existing Screening Methods The largest ever registrational study for a diagnostic product, involving more than 47,000 women shows that the cobas(R) 4800 Human Papillomavirus (HPV) test from Roche, is able to improve the detection of pre-cancerous cells in women whose cervical smears tested normal.
New research being presented at the 2010 FIP Pharmaceutical Sciences World Congress in association with the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists Annual Meeting and Exposition will highlight a targeted inhalable dry powder vaccine that may prove preferable in terms of needle avoidance and expected lower cost than the current commercial human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine used throughout the world.
Patients with head and neck cancer who have never smoked have much better survival rates after radiation therapy than patients with a history of smoking.
University of Maryland researchers also find that the majority of those who receive the vaccine fail to get the recommended 3 doses.

Bovine papillomavirus (BPV), of the Papillomaviridae family, is a group of DNA viruses common in cattle. The virus can cause warts of the skin and alimentary tract and in rare cases cancer. It is also though that equine sarcoid, a skin tumor, is brought on in horses and donkeys by BPV. BPV is a good model for the study of the papillomavirus molecular biology. Like others in their family BPVs are small non-enveloped viruses with an icosahedral capsid around 50-60 nm in diameter. BPVs have...
