GlaxoSmithKline plc Research Report

On November 28, 2013, GlaxoSmithKline plc (GSK) announced that the European Medicines Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) is recommending marketing authorization for a two-dose schedule in 9-14 year old girls for its cervical cancer vaccine, Cervarix™ [Human papillomavirus bivalent (types 16 and 18) vaccine, recombinant]. Thomas Breuer, Senior Vice President and Lead Physician, GSK Vaccines, commented, "We are delighted by the positive opinion issued by CHMP on a two-dose schedule for Cervarix. It represents another major milestone in our commitment to reducing the global burden of cervical cancer which remains high. Many countries are unable to implement national immunisation programmes in young adults with high coverage. A two-dose vaccine schedule has the potential to be easier to deliver than a three-dose schedule, thereby expanding the population that could benefit from protection." The Company added that a CHMP positive opinion is one of the last steps before marketing authorization is received from European Commission, but does not always result in marketing authorizations.
