Abstract

Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer in women worldwide. Despite organized screening programs, annually 200 women die due to cervical cancer. Current treatments for cervical cancer are platinum based chemotherapy (cisplatin) and radiotherapy, which cause a multitude of DNA damage. To repair this damage, cells possess DNA repair mechanisms. This report will describe the mechanisms involved in repairing DNA damage and analyze whether these mechanisms can be utilized as therapeutic agents to increase efficiency of current treatments of cervical cancer.
