Gardasil 9 HPV vaccine also safe, effective in younger boys, girls

June 30, 2015

Recent study data showed that Gardasil 9 HPV vaccine also is safe and effective in boys and girls aged 9 to 15 years, advancing previous research that found similar results for girls and young women aged 16 to 26 years.

“This study represents the first analysis of 9-valent HPV vaccine immunogenicity in girls and boys 9 to 15 years of age, the primary target population for immunoprophylaxis to prevent HPV-related pre-cancers and cancers of the anogenital tract,” researcher Pierre Van Damme, MD, PhD, of the Center for the Evaluation of Vaccination, University of Antwerp, and colleagues wrote. “The antibody responses in 9- to 15-year-old boys and girls was shown to be noninferior to those observed in 16- to 26-year-old young women.”
