Gardasil Should Not Be Mandatory, Scientist Says

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A scientist who has worked on clinical trials for cervical cancer vaccines, including Gardasil, says she opposes any moves to make such vaccines mandatory because not enough is known about their side effects. Dr. Diane Harper, who has dedicated two decades of her career to research of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – the virus that causes cervical cancer – told Florida TV station WFOR-TV that the rush to recommend and mandate Merck & Co.’s Gardasil for very young girls “went too fast without any breaks.”

Dr. Harper says that there has not been enough post-marketing surveillance of Gardasil to insure that it is free of side effects that could prove particularly dangerous to young girls. “We don’t know yet what’s going to happen when millions of doses of the vaccine have been given and to put in place a process that says you must have this vaccine, it means you must be part of a big public experiment. So we can’t do that until we have more data.” Dr. Harper said.

Concerns about mandatory Gardasil vaccination grew following a A 2007 analysis of Gardasil adverse event reports by Judicial Watch. That review revealed that there had been at least 3,461 complaints of adverse reactions to the Gardasil vaccine, and there could have been as many as eight deaths attributable to Gardasil. According to Judicial Watch, in several instances, blood clots were reported to have occurred after the administration of Gardasil. The Gardasil side effect reports also included 28 women who miscarried after receiving Gardasil. Other side effects reported included paralysis, Bells Palsy, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and seizures were also reported.

While many object to efforts to force Gardasil on young girls, Doctor Harper’s qualms about the vaccine carry more weight than some others. While working as a professor at Dartmouth College Dr. Harper served as a researcher on study trials for Gardasil and another HPV vaccine, Cervarix, which is being developed by GlaxoSmithKline. In fact, she is the lead author on two Cervarix papers. While Dr. Harper said says she is convinced HPV vaccines can help prevent cancers in the long run, she believes that parents and women should have a choice. Dr. Harper said she would also be opposed to any measure to make Cervarix mandatory if it comes to market.

Gardasil was approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in June 2006. Just weeks after its approval, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended that all young girls between the ages of 11 and 12 receive the Gardasil vaccine. Merck was more than happy to echo the CDC recommendations, and actually began an intensive lobbying effort to convince state health authorities to make Gardasil vaccinations mandatory for young girls. Merck’s heavy promotion of Gardasil has been effective, as some analysts estimate that Gardasil could net the company as much as $1.4 billion in its first full year on the market.
