If you are already infected with HPV the risk of getting precancerous lesions/cancer may increase between 30% and 44.6% after HPV vaccination according to Merck’s own briefing document submitted to the FDA in 2006 [click here to read]. The Merck sponsored clinical study 13 exposed 156 people to Gardasil and 137 to a placebo who tested positive for one of the strains of HPV contained in the vaccine. The results showed 31 of the 156 people exposed to Gardasil developed cervical cancer as opposed to only 19 in the placebo group. Since study 13 there have been at least 278 reports of cervical cancer post-vaccination.
HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccine is used to prevent infection with certain types of human papillomavirus, which can cause chronic life threatening ailments like cervical cancer (cancer of cervix – lower part of uterus) and genital warts (wart-like growth on genitals). Medical authorities in various countries including United States recommend vaccination of young women against HPV. This may prevent genital warts, cervical cancer and other painful & expensive treatments of cervical dysplasia (abnormal cell growth on cervix), which can be caused by HPV strains. Ã‚Â The HPV vaccines currently available in the market are Merck’s Gardasil and GSK’s Cervarix.
Gardasil Vaccination is Associated with Serious Injury, including Nerve Damage
Other than risk of developing cervical cancer, there are various cases of Gardasil related injury reported in medical journals. Ã‚Â For example, the Journal of Child Neurology recently published an article about a 16-year-old-girl had lost her eye vision within 10 days of receiving the second course of the HPV vaccine. The event of loss of vision took place after girl child experienced a headache on the left side of her head after eight days of second HPV shot. Ã‚Â Later in a span of 48 hours, the pain stretched across her head and she lost her sight in both eyes.
