HPV and oral cancer

This article discusses HPV being the cause of an increasing proportion of cases of oral cancer in men, likely both because of an increase in oral sex, as well as a decline in smoking, reducing the number of smoking-related oral cancer cases.

That same article notes that Merck intends to ask for FDA approval to use Gardasil on men sometime in 2008, other reports I've seen say the studies they have might still not apply to my age group.
