FDA Approves Cervarix, GlaxoSmithKline's Cervical Cancer Vaccine
Date:10/16/2009

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE: GSK) announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved CERVARIX® [Human papillomavirus bivalent (types 16 and 18) vaccine, recombinant] for the prevention of cervical pre-cancers and cervical cancer associated with oncogenic human papillomavirus (HPV) types 16 and 18 for use in girls and young women (aged 10-25).

"Immunization with a vaccine such as CERVARIX -- along with annual doctor visits and Pap tests -- will help protect women from cervical cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in women in their twenties and thirties."

The majority (approximately 75 percent) of cervical cancers in North America are caused by HPV types 16 and 18.

The impact of CERVARIX against the overall burden of HPV-related cervical disease results from a combination of efficacy against, and disease contribution of, HPV-16, HPV-18, and oncogenic HPV types not included in the vaccine. In a subgroup of clinical trial participants without oncogenic HPV infection at the time of the first vaccination and without evidence of prior exposure to HPV 16 and 18, the vaccine showed an overall efficacy of 70 percent against pre-cancerous lesions, regardless of HPV type. In an additional analysis that assessed the impact of CERVARIX against spe
