Studies Assessing the Burden on HPV in the US

I received this info from the NJ Office of Cancer Control and the CDC.

"A new series of studies released online today indicates that 25,000 cases of human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers occurred in 38 states and the District of Columbia annually during 1998-2003.

Featuring 22 articles that primarily use cancer registry data from the CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries and the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results program from1998-2003, the supplement assesses the epidemiology of cancers that have been shown to be previously associated with HPV: cervical, vulvar, vaginal,penile, anal, and some head and neck cancers."

You can find the studies here.

For more info on HPV- associated cancers check out this CDC site.


Every Day is a Blessing.
