A Randomized, Double-Blind, Phase III Study of the Immunogenicity and Safety of a 9-Valent Human Papillomavirus L1 Virus-Like Particle Vaccine (V503) Versus Gardasil®in 9-15-Year-Old Girls.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A 9-valent human papillomavirus (9vHPV) vaccine has been developedto prevent infections and diseases related to HPV 6/11/16/18 (as per the licensed quadrivalent HPV [qHPV] vaccine), as well as 5additional oncogenic HPV types (HPV 31/33/45/52/58). Compared with the qHPV vaccine, the 9vHPV vaccine potentially increases the coverage of protection from 70% to 90% of cervical cancers. We compared the immunogenicity and safety of the 9vHPV vaccine vs. the qHPV vaccine in 9-15-year-old girls.
