Huge improvement of the approach thanks to advancementes of the technology. One of the best advantages is that once a genetic variation is found important there is no need to run complicated and specialized sequencing tests for patients, simple molecular methods can help a doctor finding out if the specific cancer it is in treatment have this mutation or not.

Advances in technology will be beneficial to finding treatments to many diseases.

Scientists believe in the not too distant future, preventative vaccination strategies similar to those used for hepatitis B hold great promise for reducing the burden of HPV-associated cancer.
