Treatment With Cidofovir for Children With Laryngeal Papillomatosis (Warts in the Throat)
The purpose of this study is to see what dose of the drug cidofovir is safe to treat laryngeal papillomatosis (warts in the throat which occur over and over) in children.
Laryngeal papillomatosis is caused by infection with a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). At present, there is no approved drug to treat this infection. However, cidofovir is a drug effective against several viruses. Cidofovir may be able to attack the HPV virus. This study tests the safety of giving this drug to children.
