Primary prevention of uterine cervix cancer spans the gamut of human papillomavirus vaccine development, dietary adjustment, chemoprevention, and risk reduction. Lifestyle and social behaviors impact on risk for cervical cancer. Before examining the growing body of molecular evidence, animal studies, and phase I clinical trials that suggest that a virus-based vaccine for cervical cancer may soon become a reality, one must reflect on what has gone before in the vaccine-based battle with viral disease.
