30 years of changes in cervical cancer screening. What's in store?


One of the greatest successes in medicine is the dramatic decrease in US deaths from cervical cancer that followed the implementation of clinical protocols for cervical cancer screening and treatment.

Dr. J. Thomas Cox has made many contributions to sustaining and advancing cervical cancer screening and treatment practice by developing advanced clinical protocols for managing cervix abnormalities, leading efforts to integrate HPV testing into general screening protocols and encouraging the use of the HPV vaccine to reduce disease burden. At OBG Management, we are deeply indebted to Dr. Cox for providing wise guidance to our readers over many years. His insights and advice have helped to improve women’s health throughout the world.

We wish Dr. Cox the best as he retires as Contributing Editor.
