Surgery for cervical cancer may be eliminated in the future with the development of a gel to treat early-stage cervical cancer. The gel blocks proteins which grow rapidly and may potentially turn cancerous. Clinical trials are expected to start soon. The gel has caused the death of cancer sells in culture samples. Cervical cancer is caused by human papilloma virus which is a sexually transmitted disease. Nearly 250,000 women worldwide die annually from cervical cancer. However, it remains to be seen if the gel can penetrate to deeper tissues.
