• Single dose of vaccine may prevent cervical cancer


    PARIS: A single vaccine shot, rather than the recommended triple dose, may be enough to protect women against cervical cancer, a study said on Wednesday. If further work validates the findings, there could be major gains for campaigns to vaccinate young women in poor countries, the authors said. The research looked at Cervarix, which with another vaccine, Gardasil, is being rolled out to shield young girls from the human papillomavirus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer.
