Dr. Jones shares if there any any clinical trials done around the Human Papillomavirus/HPV vaccine.
Yes, there are completely ongoing clinical trials all the time. They had done an initial set of HPV trials that came out that there were some side effects such as the local, the redness in the arm, the pain, the fevers, and they put it out that it was actually quite protective.
As about two weeks ago, they were showing that they needed to do some more long-term research on the HPV vaccine. It's such a new vaccine that we’re only talking years, couple of years, versus certain vaccines that have been around for 20, 30, 40 years.
