I am thinkn about doing a research paper on HPV and the Gardasil Vaccine. Good idea? ?

by Rachel on August 21, 2011

I am in a Eng 102 class and have to do a 12-20 page research paper on any topic. I am having a hard time coming up with something to write about. I have to have 50 resources. If it is a good idea, i need to narrow the topic. What do u think would be a good idea?

christophers gf will be of no help to you, about 80% of the population has experience with HPV, they just may not know about it.
I think that is a great topic, gardasil is one of the biggest medical breakthroughs in recent time. You will easily find 50 sources also

Yes it sounds like a great idea.
It has great potential in saving women in the coming years.
It is very broad, used on girls at different ages and has mixed reviews.
Since it is so new, its immunity isn’t exactly sure, there have been cases of serious side effects and its use after exposure to HPV is still complex. Also that it targets a few types of HPV and some of which are the ones often causing Cervical Cancer, which usually through regular pap smears and early detention, should result in a full recovery.
Also what could be interesting is if you find the response from the vaccine… eg will girls and women who have this vaccine continue to have regular pap smears? will this change there use of contraception?
Tell me how you go, this sounds very interesting!!

I will talk to you about it – I was recently diagnosed with HPV/genital warts and have had it pretty rough.

I’ve developed strange cells and have to go for tests in the next few weeks.

Slightly embarassing but its a long story as to why I have it.
