Cancer prevention benefits of HPV vaccine

Available vaccines for the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) have proven effective in preventing up to 90% of HPV-related cervical, anal, oral, penile and throat cancers. Yet, U.S. vaccination rates of boys and girls lag far behind that of other developed nations. MD Anderson gynecologic oncologist Lois Ramondetta, M.D., and head and neck surgeon Erich Sturgis, M.D., discuss their efforts to educate the public and increase HPV vaccination rates.

Guests: Lois Ramondetta, M.D., and Erich Sturgis, M.D.
