Harald zur Hausen, virologist, Nobel prize laureate

1. 10. 2016

Around a quarter of million women around the world die every year of cervical cancer. Protection is vaccination. Prior to the development of vaccine it was necessary to find out what the cause of the disease is. And that is what professor Harald zur Hausen did. He discovered papilomaviruses that cause cervical cancer. Thats why he recieved 2008 Nobel prize in medicine. it was he who pushed for a development of the vaccine, although at first pharmaceutical companies were not sure whether its development would pay off. Who in his opinion should be vaccinated, how to make the vaccine cheaper for developing countries and whats the connection between red meat and cancer?
