Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and the safety of PGA(Poly-gamma Glutamic Acid) for the the fertile women with Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN1).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia Drug: Poly-gamma Glutamic Acid Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This study is to compare the regression rate of Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN1) between the treatment group and the control group.

The treatment group will be administered with PGA (Poly-gamma Glutamic Acid) for 4 weeks followed by 8 weeks observation.

The control group will be observed for 12 weeks without any comparator.
