President's Panel: Increase HPV Vaccination

Chemotherapy Advisor, via Health Day News, superior sources of current cancer and drug information, reports that the President's Cancer Panel states that too few American girls and boys are getting vaccinated against human papillomavirus (HPV).

Current recommendations from the CDC are detailed at www.chemotherapyadvisor.com.  The Panel states that in creasing HPV vaccination rates to 80% would prevent 53,000 future cervical cancer cases among girls who are currently aged 12 years and younger, and that it would prevent thousands of cases of other HPV-related cancers in both females and males.
