Papillomavirus vaccine types 16 and 18: new drug. Cervical cancer: just another vaccine.

[No authors listed]

Abstract

The papillomavirus 16, 18 vaccine, like the papillomavirus 6, 11, 16, 18 vaccine, reduces the risk of high-grade cervical dysplasia due to all viral genotypes by about 40% in young women who are not yet infected at the time of vaccination. The vaccine does not seem to provoke any serious adverse effects, but there is no proof that it reduces the risk of cancer.
