Mayo Clinic Holding Clinical Trial for HPV-Positive Head & Neck Cancer
The bad news is, HPV+ throat cancer is on the rise.
The good news is, it is highly curable…90-95% in non-smokers where the cancer that hasn’t spread outside the neck.
The bad news is, 1 in 3 people after standard treatments have significantly long-term effects.
The good news is, the Mayo Clinic is soliciting people for clinical trials for treatments that will still be curable but with far less side effects and toxicity.
I asked John if he would have been willing to go to the Mayo Clinic for a clinical trial and he said YES.
If you would like more information about this trial, please contact: Dr. Daniel Ma at the Mayo Clinic by email: Ma.Daniel@mayo.edu
