    Default Spain Withdraws Gardasil (cervical cancer vaccine) After Illnesses



    Spanish health authorities have withdrawn tens of thousands of doses of Gardasil, a vaccine against the human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV), after two teenagers who received the shots were hospitalized.

    The two girls were vaccinated last week as part of a vast government program targeting adolescents. A batch of nearly 76,000 doses of the vaccine has been withdrawn from the market.

    The vaccine has been available since 2006.

    BEWARE! I've heard bad things about this vaccine - teenage girls getting mysterious muscle wasting diseases.

    It has since been reported that the two girls' cases were not to do with Gardasil, and a clean bill of health has been given to the drug (whether rightly or wrongly, I don't know enough about it)...

    One of the world’s best-selling vaccines, Merck’s Gardasil, is quietly producing some serious money for an unexpected beneficiary—the University of Washington.

    Thanks to some hard-fought patent litigation from the 1990s that ended up strengthening and extending the lifespan of a critical piece of UW intellectual property, the university is now raking in a windfall of royalties on Merck’s cervical cancer vaccine. This product’s success has been a driving force that has caused the licensing income UW gets from the Washington Research Foundation to more than triple in the past three years, to $38 million in 2008 from $12 million in 2006.

    rhonda15 - be careful unless you want lots of teenage girls to suffer later in life in the way so many children did over the MMR scare created by that fraud Wakefield in the UK.

    Spreading these stories is a bit like crying fire in a cinema.

    No Toxic - this Gardasil is a nasty little number for sure - there have been many adverse reactions all over to this.

    Vaccine Safety Group Releases GARDASIL Reaction Report

    8 more deaths connected to HPV vaccine

    There hundreds more reports of this - including many sites posted to by young women themselves describing really debilitating reactions and ongoing health problems.

    Probably most convincing of all for us here in Ireland is that Harney, at the beck and call of any passing pharmaceutical company, the sort of people she is normally falling over her ample self to throw money at, voluntarily cancelled the availability of the vaccine in Ireland. She was pilloried for her meaness etc etc but I reckon she knows fine well this one is a real bummer - and didnt want law suits down the line.

    Where on earth is the information to back up that claim. The people who have suffered are the victims of the MMR itself. The adverse reactions are not 'stories'.

    It would be really disappointing if this vaccine turns out to be harmful, it seemed to be one good piece of good news in relation to Cancer and I posted on another thread how the publicity surrounding Jade Goody was encouraging a big jump in the number of women attending for smear teasts and in turn, highlighting the importance of teenagers receiving the vaccine.

    Anecdotal evidence is good enough for me when you're dealing with health matters.
    It needs to be pulled and more research done.
