HPV Vaccine Kills 16-Year-Old Girl Lawsuit Alleges
Date:4/21/2010

A lawsuit filed in the U.S. Federal Court of Claims this week alleges that the HPV vaccine Gardasil caused the death of a 16 year old Missouri girl.

(PRWEB) April 21, 2010 -- A lawsuit filed in the U.S. Federal Court of Claims this week alleges that the HPV vaccine Gardasil caused the death of a 16-year-old Missouri girl. Gardasil is a vaccine used to prevent the transmission of a sexually transmitted disease called human papillomavirus (HPV). Controversy regarding the safety of Gardasil surrounded the vaccine since its FDA approval in 2006 and continues to be the subject of intense debate.

Safety and efficacy of Gardasil in question

As on December 31, 2008 there were 12,424 reports of injuries related to Gardasil in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) (1). These reports are used by the FDA to monitor the safety of vaccines and it is well known that injuries are underreported (1). Of note, 68% of the 12,424 reports of injury where written employees of Merck (1). While there is risk of injury with every drug, including vaccines, at least one report questions whether or not Gardasil provides enough protection to counterbalance the risk of injury.

In a report issued by Judicial Watch, it was found that Gardasil was not tested thoroughly enough to know whether it will be safe or effective in the long term (2). The report goes on to state that it is still unknown how long any protection provided by the vaccine lasts (2).
