10 laboratory medicine scientists have recently been named in the Science Council’s list of the UK’s top 100 scientists. This demonstrates the strength and influence that laboratory medicine has within the UK. These scientists have been recognised for their expertise, skills and leadership and are an example of the outstanding contribution laboratory medicine scientists make to the NHS.
Screening to prevent and detect cervical cancer is based on cells being brushed from the cervix into liquid preservative and examined in the laboratory under a microscope (cytology). An alternative testing strategy, screening the cells first for human papilloma virus (HPV), has been shown to lead to the detection of a larger number of treatable pre-cancerous lesions. A follow-up study of 176,464 women who had taken part in four European randomised trials that tested these screening alternatives was published online in The Lancet on 3 November 2013. HPV-based screening was found to provide 60-70% greater protection against the development of invasive cancer of the cervix than cytology-based screening.
