Therapeutic Vaccine for HPV
As I understand it, there is therapeutic vaccine in the effectiveness trials at the University of Queensland, Australia.  (Sorry I am not up on the lingo here the "safety trials" have been successfull)  It is based on the Gardasil Vaccine.

What is the likely effectiveness of the therapeutic vaccine?  (It isn't a flat out cure is it?)

Can you direct me to any other promising research being done?

(Sorry couldn't find a posting of this nature)

Thanks for your time:Mudpile

No actually I think Cervarix goes after strains 16/18.  This is a therapeutic vaccine against 6/11, the strains that cause warts.  It is still in testing in China and Australia, but should be done in that phase April of next year.

I think that where I got the article.  Small world the internet.

And unless I have really been messing up going to the wrong bathroom for thirty years, I am a guy.
