Gardasil efficacy data

The summary of product characteristics (SPC) for Gardasil (human papillomavirus [HPV] types 6, 11, 16 and 18) has been updated.

The new SPC includes information on studies that showed Gardasil has cross-protective efficacy in preventing precancerous cervical lesions due to 10 other HPV types, including type 31.

HPV 31 is related to HPV 16 and is the second most common HPV type in Europe causing precancerous cervical lesions after type 16.

Gardasil is licensed for the prevention of premalignant genital lesions (cervical, vulvar and vaginal), cervical cancer and external genital warts (condyloma acuminata) causally related to HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18.
