DENVER, March 8, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ ----Called the "Little Women," six women who have spent the past three years listening, documenting and researching parental concerns about Gardasil have been invited to formally present their information to the FDA on March 12. FDA participants include the Office of Communication, Outreach and Development/Center of Biologics (CBER), Office of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, and Office of Vaccines Research and Review.
The women making the presentation on behalf of the parents whose daughters have died or have been injured by the HPV vaccines are: Karen Maynor, mother of the late Megan Hild, New Mexico; Rosemary Mathis, whose daughter Lauren was adversely injured, North Carolina; Freda Birrell, political activist and lobbyist, Scotland and the United Kingdom; Leslie Carol Botha, broadcast journalist, Colorado; Cynthia Janak, research analyst, Illinois; and Janny Stokvis, research analyst, Netherlands.
Over 17,500 adverse reactions and 61 deaths have been reported to VAERS (estimated 1 to 10% of the population reporting). The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has posted 272 VAERS reports of abnormal pap tests post-vaccination. Reports of deaths and injuries are now coming in from the United States, New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain and India.
Birrell has compiled 40 pages of reports of deaths and injuries from the above countries for the FDA. Stokvis and Mathis have compiled data of vaccine injuries and deaths from VAERS. Botha is presenting studies on menstrual cycle evaluation to prevent vaccine injury - and the impact of aluminum on the endocrine system. Janak has researched vaccine ingredients and believes that she has found the reason as to why "healthy" girls have been injured or have died suddenly and unexpectedly within days weeks, months or potentially years after vaccination.
The group has prepared a power point presentation for the FDA "listening session." Each participant will receive a file with over 236 pages of research, data and parental concerns. As soon as the Webinar is over, the group will be releasing their data and research to the public and to the media.
The group was dubbed "Little Women" by the FDA who is impressed with the women's research and how quickly they mobilized a global movement of parents concerned about the safety and efficacy of the HPV vaccines.
