This phase I single center open labeled study is planned to assess the safety and tolerability of bevacizumab for treating patients with bilateral RRP. Approximately 20 patients will receive bevacizumab directly injected into the vocal folds. Patients who enroll in the protocol will be injected with bevacizumab in one vocal fold that represents the more diseased of the two folds. A sham injection with saline will be administered to the other vocal fold as the control. This therapy will be administered once every 6 ± 1 week for 6 months, with the same vocal fold selected for the initial treatment always getting the drug injection. The investigator will also treat lesions by laser photoangiolysis of both vocal folds using the 532 nm KTP laser.

A type of ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS causing recurrent respiratory PAPILLOMATOSIS; GENITAL WARTS; and other neoplasms.
A disorder characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep despite persistent respiratory efforts. It is due to upper airway obstruction. The respiratory pauses may induce HYPERCAPNIA or HYPOXIA. Cardiac arrhythmias and elevation of systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures may occur. Frequent partial arousals occur throughout sleep, resulting in relative SLEEP DEPRIVATION and daytime tiredness. Associated conditions include OBESITY; ACROMEGALY; MYXEDEMA; micrognathia; MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES.
