HPV jab means women only need 3 cervical screens in a lifetime

At the moment women in England are invited for cervical cancer screening 12 times between the ages of 25 and 64

Lead author Dr Rebecca Landy, medical statistician at the universty's Wolfson Institute, said: 'Our results confirm that even in unvaccinated women, screening intervals can be safely lengthened with the introduction of HPV testing with cytology triage, compared to cytology testing'.

"This decision would free up resources for where they are needed most".

Find out about some of the issues women with learning disabilities face when they have a cervical screening test. The researchers emphasize that the huge number of women is on the threshold of the age of the zone from 30 to 60 years - a period when the threat of cervical cancer to the maximum.

It is now being rolled out across the NHS, and by December 2019 all women in England will be able to get it.

"It would be great if Maisie doesn't have to have to go for screening as often as I did, because of the HPV jab and the new screening test".

The results are based on how the HPV vaccine and the improved cervical screening programme will work best together. The screening test can pick up abnormal cells that could develop into cervical cancer if left untreated.

Public Health England expressed concern earlier this over week over declining figures for cervical cancer screening uptake, which fell by 0.72% across all eligible group in 2016/17.

Ellen Page Says Brett Ratner Sexually Harassed Her On 'X-Men' Set
He caressed my leg under the table and said to me: "You must do the first step, I can't". "I made an terrible mistake", she wrote. The director was accused of sexual misconduct by several women in the industry at the start of the month.

The paper, published in the International Journal of Cancer, said reducing the frequency of smear tests is made safer by the rollout of a new way of testing for HPV - the virus which causes 95 per cent of cases of cervical cancer - which means doctors can be more confident women are at low risk. Without HPV infection there would be nearly no cervical cancer.

Researchers are not sure why the risk of cervical cancer drops so much, but one theory is that the devices stimulate an immune response that helps fight off cancer-causing infections like the human papillomavirus (HPV).

'Testing for HPV first will be rolled out into the English cervical screening programme over the next two years and we are working with NHS colleagues to ensure an effective implementation'.

HPV infects most people at some point. As the risk of cervical cancer is considerably reduced, the study suggests that the number of screens should be decreased accordingly, avoiding unnecessary procedures for women.

"While we hope to see these improvements to the screening programme in the future, it's important that women continue to take up invitations for cervical screening", she noted.

The study also suggests that women who are not vaccinated should only need seven lifetime screens when the new screening test comes in, five fewer than is now standard in the UK.

"If we do not reverse falling screening attendance we will simply be faced with more lives lost to the disease which could have been prevented".
