Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine Consistency and Non-inferiority Trial in Young Adult Women
A Long-term, Open, Follow-up of the Immunogenicity and Safety of GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals' HPV-16/18 L1/AS04 Vaccine in Healthy Female Subjects Vaccinated Either Pre- or Post-menarche in the Primary Study
The study will be extended for subjects who received all three doses of vaccine in Finland, Denmark and Estonia to determine long-term safety and immunogenicity of the HPV-16/18 vaccine. Human Papilloma virus (HPV) are viruses that cause a common infection of the skin and genitals in men and women. Several types of HPV infection are transmitted by sexual activity and, in women, can infect the cervix (part of the uterus or womb). This infection often goes away by itself, but if it does not go away (this is called persistent infection), it can lead in women over a long period of time to cancer of the cervix. If a woman is not infected by HPV, it is very unlikely that she will get cervical cancer. This study will evaluate the consistency of consecutive vaccine lots and the non-inferiority of modified manufacturing processes of GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals HPV-16/18 vaccine and the vaccine safety, over 12 months, in young adolescents and women of 10-25 years of age at study start.
Approximately 750 study subjects received different lots of the HPV vaccine administered intramuscularly according to a 0-1-6 month schedule. The Protocol Posting has been updated in order to comply with the FDA Amendment Act, Sep 2007.

Primary Completion Date
Inclusion Criteria: - A female who enrolled in the HPV-012 (NCT00337818) study in Denmark, Estonia and Finland, received three doses of vaccine and completed Visit 4 (Month 7). - Written informed consent obtained from the subject prior to enrolment (for subjects below the legal age of consent, written informed consent must be obtained from a parent or legally acceptable representative (LAR) and, in addition, the subject must sign and personally date a written informed assent). Exclusion criteria - Use of any investigational or non-registered product (drug or vaccine) or planned use during the study period. - Concurrently participating in another clinical study, at any time during the study period, in which the subject has been or will be exposed to an investigational or a non-investigational product (pharmaceutical product or device). - Chronic administration of immunosuppressants or other immune-modifying drugs occurring less than three months prior to blood sampling. - Administration of immunoglobulins and/or any blood products within the three months preceding blood sampling.
