Abstract


  • Since the introduction of the HPV vaccine, questions have been asked about its efficacy in preventing cancer linked

    with HPV. Concerns about the HPV vaccine safety profile have also been raised. This paper highlights the rapidly

    growing body of evidence (including clinical trials and post-marketing surveillance) illustrating both the safety of

    the HPV vaccine, through a detailed investigation of reported adverse events, and its efficacy in reducing both HPV

    infections rates and the resulting drop in cervical lesions, which have been demonstrated to be good predictors of

    cervical cancer risk.
