FDA Panel Weighs Approving HPV Vaccine for Males
Date:9/9/2009

fore girls are sexually active," said Dr. Lolita McDavid, medical director of Child Advocacy and Protection at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. "About 10,000 American women will get cervical cancer in a year; about 3,700 are going to die from it."

"About 250,000 new case of genital warts appear in males every year," she added. "There certainly seems to be a benefit for males."

Experts hope that making the vaccine available for boys will have additional, non-medical benefits.

"Countless studies show that a lot of shame and stigma almost universally comes with any HPV diagnosis," Wyand said. "That's another factor that weighs into it. Hopefully, approving the vaccine for males would reduce any stigma."

There's more on HPV at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
