Cervical Cancer [electronic resource]

White Fox (Firm)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In years past cervical cancer was not seen as a serious public health problem, but today it is recognized as the second most common cancer worldwide among women between 14 and 44 years old, and the third leading cancer-related cause of death. Epidemiology is also pertinent in view of cervical cancer's link to STD (sexually transmitted disease) transmission. Since 1999 human papillomavirus, or HPV, has been considered the main cause of cervical cancer. What methods does medical science offer for effectively identifying HPV? Can we someday expect more effective, more efficient ways to detect its presence? Indeed, will we eventually be able to prevent cervical cancer altogether with the arrival of more and more sophisticated technologies? This program shows how advances in molecular biology and high throughput gene expression profiling have heralded a new era in the identification of molecular targets related to cancer initiation and development.
