Your HPV Vaccine Helped You Pass Your Pap Test

The PATRICIA trial looked at women over 3 years after they had received the 2-HPV type vaccine Cervarix which is a vaccine against HPV-16 and HPV-18. We have already heard that these vaccines do prevent new acquisition of HPV types, and we've learned in prior reports from 2009 by the group including Dr. Mark Martens from Oklahoma State that high grade dysplasia were prevented. But now it is shown that over 58% fewer abnormal pap smears are in the prior vaccinated group. This is great news. It's always nice to pass your Gyno Exam! But remember girls, not getting tested is still not good with your Gyno!
