  • I have had recurrent respiratory papillomatosis for 14 years. My vocal cords have an HPV infection that grows papillomas. I tried interferon treatment and for nine months, nothing grew. When the treatment was stopped, the papillomas returned with a vengeance. I then underwent CO2 laser ablation with Cidofofir injections, which was done 30 times. I am losing my voice to scar tissue. Are there any new therapies that might halt these growths?  Click here for answer
