Women's Health: Cervical Cancer drug wins several fans at the FDA

The fight between complex diseases and vaccines with the FDA had not been going too well for drug companies - remember Cerebrex and other debacles such as Vioxx?

However, but for a few who consider themselves the moral police, everyone at the FDA, including 9 public health groups seem to be ga-ga over this new vaccine, that can prove to be quite beneficial to several victims of a dangerous disease.

However, this does not eliminate the pap - smear test, as the vaccine is not strong enough to combat all strains of HPV.
