Blood Clots Are A Potential Risk Associated With Gardasil

30.07.2010 | Author: vaccineinjuryhelpcenter

Blood clots and other serious side effects have been associated with Gardasil. Gardasil is a vaccine designed to prevent certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV). These HPV types are associated with a great percentage of cervical cancer cases as well as a smaller percentage of other types of cancers. According to the Merck, the manufacturer of the drug, the vaccine cannot treat, it can only prevent, so it must be given before HPV infection develops. In fact, the FDA has suggested that the vaccine be given before adolescence. The reason for this is that some HPV strains are sexually transmitted. The idea is that by giving the vaccine before adolescence, it will be given before sexual activity begins. Merck is working diligently to ensure that all the families of all young females will be forced to subject their daughters to this potentially harmful vaccine. At Vaccine Injury Help Center we have real attorneys that understand your apprehension.

In fact, we are investigating all types of serious side effects that have been linked to Gardasil. These include blood clots, neurological disorders and even death.

Admittedly, most of the reports of adverse reactions related to Gardasil have been classified as non-serious. However, a small percentage have been classified as serious adverse reactions.

Some people that have had the vaccine have later endured Gullian Barre Syndrome. This is a rare disorder that can oftentimes be triggered after an acute infectious process. This disorder is nothing short of frightening. Gardasil Gullian Barre Syndrome is life threatening. It usually begins with a weakness in the legs that becomes a paralysis. This paralysis spreads to the upper limbs and then to the face. Death often occurs related to pulmonary complications. However, if the symptoms are caught early enough and aggressive treatment is sought, the treatment may help in reducing the fatal aspect of the disorder.
