This poor ignored little board needs a little more attention. Here's some recent good news -- there's a promising vaccine for cervical cancer:,3604,844319,00.html

<<An experimental vaccine designed to protect against the virus that causes virtually all cases of cervical cancer was completely effective in a study.

If the same results are found in a large, international study now under way, this finding could lead to the first human vaccine whose purpose is to prevent cancer.>>

I suppose the only related bad news is that most cancers aren't caused by viruses, so we shouldn't expect to see many more similar vaccines.
