UBC Researchers Advocate HPV Vaccine Scrutiny

Vaccine Safety

Story at-a-glance -

  • New research from the University of British Columbia (UBC) has provided evidence that Gardasil, a human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, may cause a type of inflammation in the brain involving blood vessels (cerebral vasculitis) that can lead to death.
  • Ever since Gardasil vaccine was licensed in 2006, reports of serious adverse events have included autoimmune and neurological disorders sometimes involving clinical symptoms similar to cerebral vasculitis, an often-fatal condition in which blood vessels in the spinal cord and brain become inflamed. The new research suggests that cerebral vasculitis can be triggered by Gardasil vaccine.
  • In more than 90 percent of cases, women naturally clear HPV infection from their bodies within two years without any complications, at which point cervical cells return to normal.
  • Cervical cancer is usually preventable and curable if detected early enough through PAP screenings and prompt treatment is initiated, which has reduced cervical cancer rates by 70 percent in the U.S. since PAP screens became a routine part of women’s health care in the 1960’s.
