Cervical Cancer: Myths And Facts

Myth: The vaccine was not properly tested and has not been proven to prevent HPV-related cancers.

Fact: In initial clinical trials, the vaccine was given to 20,000 women aged 16 to 26 years in 33 countries including Australia, before it was approved for a widespread use. Further clinical trials involving more than 4,000 males aged 16 to 26 years from 18 countries showed the vaccine was 90 percent effective in preventing genital warts and abnormalities associated with penile cancer, and 78 per cent effective in preventing anal disease, caused by HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18.
