Subject: Cervarix BLA - Information Request RE: HPV-009

In the safety report for subject PID 389954 (study HPV-009), the case report states the following:

"Follow-up received on 11 December 2007 : On 10 December 2007 a copy of the biopsy report from the National Cancer Institute of the United States was obtained : Diagnosis : colon, total colectomy : severe mucosal injury with penetrating ulcers, fibrinopurulent pseudomembranous exudate, inflammatory polyps and inflammatory pseudopolyps, bacterial and fungal elements are present on surface and luminal area. The differential diagnosis is broad and includes idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), infections, ischemic or drug induced injury. This case was seen in consultation with the GI pathology section of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and they agree with out interpretation. They do not favor IBD as the most possible etiology. A copy of their report is in our files."
