BBC News report

"A commonly used HIV drug could be used to prevent cervical cancer, UK researchers believe.

Early lab tests show the antiviral drug lopinavir attacks the virus that causes cervical cancer - HPV - as well as HIV.

The University of Manchester team envisage that the oral drug could be made into a simple cream or pessary to apply to the cervix. " (or, I guess, other places  ;))
