  • Study Cites Increase in Cancers From HPV By DENISE GRADY Published: October 3, 2011  Throat cancers caused by a virus transmitted during oral sex have increased significantly in the United States in recent years, researchers reported on Monday. 
  • Dr. Gillison said the vaccine companies had paid for her research in the past, but had no role in this study, which was paid for by the National Cancer Institute, Ohio State University and the Oral Cancer Foundation 
  • Researchers think the trend may be attributable to increases in oral sex, particularly among younger people who think it is safer than intercourse. 
  • Researchers think the vaccines might also prevent some throat cancers, but cannot be sure unless the vaccines are specifically tested for that purpose. 
  • The researchers estimated that over all, throat cancers caused by the virus have increased to 2.6 per 100,000 people in 2004 from 0.8 cases per 100,000 people in 1988.
