Five USC scientists and one Keck School of Medicine of USC physician have been elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, an honor awarded to AAAS members by their peers.
Research from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California analysed data from several observational studies involving more than 12,000 women worldwide. The results, published in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, showed that in women who used an intrauterine device (IUD) the incidence of cervical cancer was a third lower. “The pattern we found was stunning. It was not subtle at all,” said the study’s lead author Victoria Cortessis, associate professor of clinical preventive medicine at the Keck School.
