WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Merck (NYSE:MRK), known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, announced today that in the pivotal Phase III efficacy study, its investigational 9-valent HPV vaccine (V503) prevented approximately 97 percent of cervical, vaginal and vulvar pre-cancers caused by HPV types 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58. V503 also generated immune responses to HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18 that were non-inferior to those generated by GARDASIL® [Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent (Types 6, 11, 16, and 18) Vaccine, Recombinant]. V503 includes five more HPV types (31, 33, 45, 52, 58) in addition to the four original HPV types (6, 11, 16, 18) in GARDASIL. These data, along with results of two other Phase III studies, will be presented for the first time at the European Research Organisation on Genital Infection and Neoplasia (EUROGIN) Congress during a late-breaker oral session on Tuesday, November 5.
