What is HPVDr. Jared Weiss, specialist in head/neck and lung cancer at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, contributed another excellent presentation recently on a topic in head and neck cancer that is dramatically changing the field as oncologists learn more about it. The human papilloma virus, or HPV, has long been known to be a critical factor in cervical cancer and some other cancer settings, but it has only been in recent years that we have begun to truly appreciate the magnitude of its impact in head and neck cancer and its potential relevance in practical management of head/neck cancer.  

Here is the first part of Dr. Weiss’s two-part program on HPV, focusing initially on defining HPV and its potential significance.

We’ll have Part 2 of this program, which focuses on caveats and emerging trials dedicated to this patient population, up here in the next few days.

Thanks to Dr. Weiss for this very timely, helpful program!
