The approval was based on a study in women ages 27 to 45, showing that an earlier version of the vaccine was highly effective in preventing persistent HPV infection, genital warts, vulvar and vaginal precancers, cervical precancers and cervical cancersrelated to the virus types covered by the vaccine.
"Today's approval represents an important opportunity to help prevent HPV-related diseases and cancers in a broader age range", Peter Marks, MD, PhD, director of the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research", said in a press release.
The U.S. agency, which made the announcement Friday, had approved the use of Gardasil 9 for use in men and women 9 through 26 in 2014.
All told, the vaccine prevents over 90 percent of possible HPV-caused cancers, said Gypsyamber D'Souza, an epidemiologist at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. The vaccine was typically given in two doses several months apart for people ages 9 to 14 and in three doses for people ages 15 to 26.
Among the 13,000 males and females evaluated, the most commonly reported adverse events were injection site pain, swelling, redness, and headaches. It's actually a little more nuanced than that.
But even someone who has already been exposed to a few strains but not to all nine in the vaccine can still gain protection against the strains they have not encountered. But it will work against any of the other strains - remember, there are a total of nine - included in the vaccine.
Brown explained that previous research has shown that HPV, in general, was linked to HIV infection, but his research team looked at infection with 37 HPV types and found that individual types are linked, "which is more specific than saying HPV is linked". "So definitely it's worthwhile to get vaccinated if you think you're at risk and you're concerned about developing cancer from HPV", Rohr-Allegrini said. Now, most insurance companies should cover Gardasil for those in the approved age range.
Additionally, other people may have been in a long-term monogamous relationship with the same sexual partner for years - and had never been exposed to HPV - but now, later in life, are out of that relationship and becoming sexually active with new partners who might give them HPV. And for those who are older than 26 are recommended to have 3 doses.
