FDA Advisory Committee Makes Favorable Recommendation for Cervarix, GlaxoSmithKline's Candidate Cervical Cancer Vaccine
Date:9/9/2009

pes 16 and 18 are responsible for approximately 70 percent of cervical cancers globally, with types 31, 33 and 45 among the next most common cancer-causing HPV strains. Infection with cancer-causing virus types can lead to abnormal Pap smears, cervical pre-cancers and cervical cancer. Treatment of cervical pre-cancers and cancer at any stage may require invasive procedures that in some cases may damage a woman's cervix and may potentially impact her ability to have a child.

The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2009, in the U.S. approximately 11,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer and 4,000 women will die from the disease. Worldwide, more than 500,000 women will be newly diagnosed with cervical cancer and 280,000 women will die from it each year.
