Researchers found that the HPV4 vaccination rate was 13 percent higher in boys whose mothers had a Pap screening in the last three years than boys whose mothers did not have a Pap test.

Overcoming infertility after a childhood cancer
The Boston Globe
While cancer treatments for pediatric cancers have largely been a success story, leading to a survival rate of above 80 percent, some of the lifesaving therapies have left female survivors with infertility problems in their adult years. But a study led by researchers at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women's Hospital provides a glimmer of hope for these women.

Banned for life: Why gay men still can't donate blood
Men's Health via Today
Even with a clean bill of health, a gay man is considered more of a threat to the blood supply than a straight man who was treated for chlamydia, syphilis, gonorrhea, venereal warts, and genital herpes within the past year. That's because gay men, the Food and Drug Administration argues, are at "increased risk of certain transfusion transmissible infections" like AIDS and hepatitis B. And that argument isn't necessarily without merit: Gay men make up roughly half of the patients living with HIV in the United States, despite accounting for just 4 percent of the population.

Finding cancer cells in the blood
MIT Technology Review
In the near future, oncologists may be using a finger-size plastic chip with tiny channels to extract a dozen or so cancer cells from a sample of a patient's blood. Those cells, called circulating tumor cells, could then be screened for genetic disruptions that an oncologist could target with drugs best suited to attacking the tumor.
