Cervarix would become the second HPV vaccine on the market in the US, competing with Merck's Gardasil. GSK submitted data from its phase 3 trials, HPV-008. FDA had already reviewed interim data from the same trial, and requested more information. GSK expects FDA's review of Cervarix's biologics license application to take six months.
