Last Thursday marked an impressive step forward in the prevention of cancer. Amidst recent statements from an Israel-based company that they would be able to develop a cure within a year, the medical and public communities alike have been eager for development. However, further analysis showed that they only intend to have a treatment ready for human clinical trials. For cancer treatments, far fewer than 10% of them receive eventual approval for public use.

Eva Ramón Gallegos of Mexico City’s Instituto Politecnico Nacional (IPN), one of the nation’s largest universities, has successfully administered what she touts as an effective HPV cure.
