Treating skin cancer with HPV vaccines

A recent case report in JAMA Dermatology discusses successful experimental treatment of skin cancer in a 97 year-old woman, using a vaccine for human papilloma virus (HPV).

This was a individual case rather than a formal clinical trial, but it is great to see the intersection between research and clinical practice where patients can benefit and so can other clinicians and researchers. More details of the case can be found here.
