New England Journal of Medicine Publishes New Data on Gardasil,,Merck's Cervical Cancer Vaccine

WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-May 10, 2007--Today, the New England Journal of Medicine is publishing results from two Phase III studies of Merck's cervical cancer vaccine, Gardasil (Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus (Types 6, 11, 16, 18) Recombinant Vaccine). In the first study, Gardasil provided 100 percent protection against cervical, vaginal and vulvar diseases caused by the four HPV types Gardasil is designed to protect against, HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18. In the second study, GARDASIL provided 98 percent protection against advanced cervical pre-cancers caused by the two primary cancer-causing HPV types, HPV 16 and 18. These significant results, observed in 15- to 26-year-old women who were not infected with the relevant HPV types when they began the study, were sustained through an average of three years of participation in the trials, including an additional year of follow up since data were presented to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for approval of GARDASIL.

"In these two studies, GARDASIL demonstrated significant protection against serious HPV-related diseases, including high-grade cervical pre-cancers, in women not previously exposed to the relevant HPV types targeted by the vaccine," said Kevin Ault, M.D., associate professor, Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta. "Widespread immunization of 11- to 26-year-old girls and women with GARDASIL, along with continued screening, will help decrease the burden of cervical cancer and other HPV-related diseases."

It is estimated that in 2007, cervical cancer will strike more than 11,000 women in the U.S. and nearly 500,000 women around the world. GARDASIL helps protect against the four HPV types - 6, 11, 16 and 18 - that cause the most disease, including 70 percent of cervical cancer cases and 90 percent of cases of genital warts. All four types c
