Group Calls for Gardasil (Merck) Investigation

19 August 2010 at 2:28:11 PM

Regular readers here know what a marketing scam I think Gardasil is. Pap smears for girls/women are more effective and MUCH CHEAPER-but then, Garadasil is/was all about making it mandatory for little girls and raking in the moolah. Remember how Rick Perry tried to push that on Texans? Ugh.

Anyway, saw this today and I applaud this group's efforts. Here are the reasons from the press release about why they want Merck investigated for Gardasil.

  • Gardasil was fast tracked and licensed by the FDA in 2006 and immediately recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for universal use by all young women, ages 11 to 26.

• Merck studied Gardasil side effects in only about 1200 girls 16 years old and younger and followed-up for less than two years before obtaining a license.

• Merck was not required by federal health agencies to use a true placebo in pre-licensure clinical trials. Instead, they compared Gardasil against a placebo that contained an unknown amount of aluminum, potentially masking the true reactivity of Gardasil, which also contains aluminum.

• Deaths and serious health problems experienced by participants receiving Gardasil in pre-licensure clinical trials were written off by Merck as a coincidence.

• Thousands of adverse events reported to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) since Gardasil has been licensed—including deaths, serious health problems, emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and permanent injuries—have been written off by federal health agencies as a coincidence.

• Comparison of serious adverse events—such as death, stroke, blood clots, cardiac arrest, seizures, fainting, lupus, and re-challenge cases—reported to VAERS after Gardasil vaccination and meningococcal (Menactra) vaccination reveal that these events are reported three to 30 times more frequently after Gardasil vaccination.

• Doctors and parents are not being informed by federal agencies or Merck about all serious adverse events associated with Gardasil so steps can be taken to monitor vaccine reactions and prevent injury and death.
