The first vaccine for cancer ever to grace the face of this Earth!

Research is always painstaking and reaps benefits only when done with full dedication. Same is the case in the lab of Dr. Richard Schlegel in Georgetown. This has brought to the world the first cancer vaccine. //

The landmark day for the lab was when on June 8, the Food and Drug Administration approved the vaccine, called Gardasil. This vaccine for cervical cancer blocks four strains of HPV.

In the doctor’s own words, "It's a researcher's dream … to see something that started as a very cerebral idea in the laboratory to advance through animal and clinical trials, gain FDA approval and ultimately have a major global impact. It's highly unlikely but extremely gratifying to see it through so far."

Appreciating doctor’s efforts Stuart Bondurant, MD, interim executive vice-president for health sciences at Georgetown University Medical Center said, "For the past two decades, Dr. Schlegel has been a leader in improving public health for men, women and children around the world. His important work to develop a preventative cervical cancer vaccine will save millions of lives and is rooted in Georgetown's mission of service to others."

So now there is cure for cancer as well.
