A Groundbreaking Guide to the HPV Vaccine and the science,
safety, and business Behind It


Cancer strikes fear in
people’s hearts around globe. So the appearance of a vaccine to
prevent cancer–as we are assured the human papillomavirus (HPV)
vaccine will–seemed like a game-changer. Since 2006, over eighty
countries have approved the vaccine, with glowing endorsements from the
world’s foremost medical authorities. Bringing in over $2.5
billion in annual sales, the HPV vaccine is a pharmaceutical
juggernaut. Yet scandal now engulfs it worldwide.

The HPV
Vaccine on Trial
is a shocking tale, chronicling the global efforts
to sell and compel this alleged miracle. The book opens with the
vaccine’s invention, winds through its regulatory labyrinths,
details the crushing denial and dismissal of reported harms and deaths,
and uncovers the enormous profits pharma and inventors have reaped.
Authors Holland, Mack Rosenberg, and Iorio drill down into the clinical
trial data, government approvals, advertising, and personal accounts of
egregious injuries that have followed in countries as far-flung as
Japan, Australia, Colombia, India, Ireland, the U.K. and Denmark. The
authors have written an unprecedented exposé about this vaunted
vaccine.

Written in plain language, the book is for everyone
concerned – parents, patients, doctors, nurses, scientists,
healthcare organizations, government officials, and schools. Ultimately,
this book is not just about the HPV vaccine, but about how industry,
government, and medical authorities may be putting the world’s
children in harm’s way.

2.5 stars

Like many other topics in the modern day this one has become completely toxic and political. And like almost every conspiracy book there's some truth laced in here and there and some interesting points raised every now again. However, it's not a book I would feel comfortable recommending to anyone without a highly calibrated BS detector. Most of this book sent me googling and thinking, "Is that really true?" And sometimes it was and sometimes it wasn't, but it was almost never the full 2.5 stars

And sometimes it was and sometimes it wasn't, but it was almost never the full story and often spin. But that's not to say the book's not useful. I'm glad I read it. I learned some stuff I probably wouldn't have got anywhere else. But this ain't pleasure reading, folks. This is work. This is sorting through a dunghill for diamonds. And I found a few. ...more

Every parent should read this before having their precious child vaccinated. How can a placebo said to be "just saline" contain adjuvants to throw off results of course if the "control group" had problems it can't be the vaccine. Legalized serial killers the truth is hard, hopefully it sets some free.

The CDC & FDA are charged with protecting the citizens of the United States and sadly, in this instance, they are not doing their job. If Merck would roll out a safe, effective HPV vaccine, I would be all for it. Unfortunately, my own daughter suffers from a vaccine injury from this vaccine so, I know all too well, the truth of this vaccine’s safety, or lack thereof. To say these reactions are not causal, is akin to saying that lung cancer following years of smoking is not causal. Just like with Vioxx, the truth will come out. ...more

Excellent reporting on the rollout of the HPV vaccine in the mid 2000s — also known as Gardasil or Cervarix —and its aftermath. The authors are very careful to be objective and the book is, if anything, so research heavy that the average reader (me!) may occasionally get lost among all the scientific studies and references. Since this vaccine is recommended for children and young adults of all genders — and will soon be recommended for all adults — this book is a must-read for anyone.

The authors clearly describe the history and repercussions of the use of the HPV vaccines worldwide. It is a great book for anyone wanting to know how the vaccines were approved and how different countries have dealt with the autoimmune and neurological damage that can occur to some of those vaccinated.

This book kept me engaged (mostly! some science is hard to digest!) as I learned about issues with clinical trials and why there are more reported adverse events with this vaccine than others. If you have a child that's getting close to the age they recommend this vaccine, definitely read this first!

This is the medical version of what happened on Wall Street and I am absolutely sick about it. If the public only knew.....if doctors only knew.....if the media didn't get their paychecks from pharmaceutical advertising, then perhaps we all would have known. If you have an opinion on this topic without reading this book, then you are grossly misinformed.

In 2006, the first HPV vaccine (Gardasil) was licensed for use. Since then, 120 countries including the U.S. have adopted it, with marked success reported in decreasing the prevalence of HPV (human papillomavirus), which is implicated in the development of numerous cancers, including those of the cervix, anus, mouth and throat. In the U.S., despite limited uptake of the vaccine, HPV prevalence has been more than cut in half, with a markedly greater reduction in the age group getting the vaccine.

In the U.S., despite limited uptake of the vaccine, HPV prevalence has been more than cut in half, with a markedly greater reduction in the age group getting the vaccine. In Australia where most adolescent boys and girls have received the HPV vaccine, the reduction in HPV infection is even more profound - with the prevalence rate among 18 to 24-year old women declining from about 23% to 1% from 2005 to 2015. Since about 99.99% of cervical cancers are caused by HPV, it's anticipated that Australia could in coming years be the first nation to essentially eliminate this cancer entirely.

This is great news - but not for antivaccine advocates. In "The HPV Vaccine On Trial", longtime antivax campaigner Mary Holland and two coauthors who similarly lack a medical or scientific background attack the HPV vaccine as ineffective, unnecessary and dangerous - but fail miserably to make an effective case.

While you won't find this information in the book, lead author Mary Holland has long condemned vaccines as a whole. She co-authored "Vaccine Epidemic", a misinformation-filled screed against immunization which included a defense of Andrew Wakefield, the researcher who published an unethical and fraudulent study suggesting a link between MMR vaccine and autism. The paper was later retracted by The Lancet after knowledge of Wakefield's transgressions (including accepting hefty payments from a lawyer's group hoping to file lucrative lawsuits against vaccine makers) became known.

"The HPV Vaccine On Trial" depends heavily on the same discredited tropes that have been commonly used in other antivax books and articles.

Most prominently there are anecdotes about young people who developed ailments somewhere around the time they were vaccinated - in some instances, much later (one case describes a young woman who started getting panic attacks months after HPV vaccination). Another case is that of Colton Berrett, a young man who reportedly had no problems with the first two doses of a three-dose HPV vaccine series, then developed a paralytic syndrome with onset two weeks after his final HPV shot. This ailment (transverse myelitis) has many potential causes, but vaccination has never been shown to be one of them (a study involving 64 million vaccine doses found no association). This hasn't stopped antivaxers from seizing on the sad outcome to Berrett's illness (he took his own life) as a vehicle to attack vaccines.
At least the book left out one of the more bizarre attempts to link the HPV vaccine to a death; an antivaccine website contains an account of a young woman who fell down a well and died, one month after being vaccinated.

In reality, HPV vaccines have been found to be very safe, with potential side effects mostly limited to minor problems like temporary injection site pain, swelling and redness. Holland et al list a whopping number of ailments alleged to be caused by the vaccine, but there is neither a logical mechanism nor convincing evidence for linking such a multitude of disparate conditions to the vaccine.

There isn't space in a single review to cover all the errors and distortions in this book, but examples include the laughable suggestion that HPV infection can be prevented by improved sanitation and clean water (since there are approximately 43,000 new cases of HPV-linked cancer in the U.S. annually, one wonders if Holland et al think the U.S. is a Third World country without access to clean water or sewers). In the case of cervical cancer, close to 100% of cases occur in HPV-infected women, but the book tries to play up the tiny minority of cases where HPV has not been demonstrated, in an attempt to show the vaccine isn't necessary. To that end, the book also claims that the infection "clears almost all the time". Consider that there are currently an estimated 80 million Americans with HPV, and about 90% of them will have their infections resolve within two years. That still leaves 7.2 million with persistent infection and the potential for precancerous and cancerous changes. We have no way to predict which infections will spontaneously resolve and which will dangerously persist. The book attempts to present Pap screening as a viable alternative to HPV vaccination. However, Pap tests do not prevent HPV infection - they can only monitor it; and while highly useful they are not perfect, occasionally missing serious abnormalities. Meantime, in addition to 43,000 Americans developing HPV-linked cancers each year, hundreds of thousands of people experience precancerous changes due to HPV, and must undergo costly, invasive and sometimes painful testing and procedures to check for and eliminate dysplasias (precancers.) The morbidity of these conditions is something the book glosses over or ignores entirely. This is a common antivax tactic - focus only on deaths due to disease (rather ghoulishly, antivaxers seem to think these numbers are low enough to be "manageable") while refusing to acknowledge complications and suffering due to vaccine-preventable diseases.

The book also makes liberal use of the "toxin gambit" - claiming that minute amounts of Scary-Sounding Chemicals are responsible for vaccine injuries (there is no viable evidence for such claims; for an excellent takedown of this ploy, search for the Science-Based Medicine article "Toxic Myths About Vaccines"). One such pseudo-toxin is blamed for fertility problems alleged to be caused by the vaccine. However, a recent large-scale study debunked the major claim in this area, refuting the idea that premature ovarian failure is linked to HPV vaccination.
Ironically, HPV infection itself may damage fertility, i.e. when cervical conization procedures or hysterectomy made necessary by high grade precancers or cancers compromise or eliminate potential for pregnancy. You won't find attention to this problem in the book.

Other commonplace antivax tactics that the book employs include references to low quality publications by poorly regarded researchers such as Sin Hang Lee and Yehuda Shoenfeld (whose mouse paper attempting to find fault with a vaccine adjuvant was retracted due to methodologic flaws). A much, much greater amount of quality research in support of immunization is either ignored or attacked as tainted by conflicts of interest. Actually citing good evidence to counter this huge body of positive research (much of it by independent researchers) is apparently too hard for the book's authors - much easier for them to dismiss it via innuendo.

Speaking of "conflicts of interest": one wonders why, if money rules in the Medical Mafia (as antivaxers like to regard the great majority of physicians), the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists promotes HPV vaccination. Consider that for a long time, routine Pap tests have been an income generator for gynecologists, assuring frequent patient visits for health assessments and other reasons. Routine HPV testing (also endorsed by ACOG) and HPV vaccination will greatly cut down on the need for Pap tests, reduce patient visits and deprive gynecologists of significant income. Yet the members of ACOG, because they care deeply about the health of their patients, strongly support HPV vaccination. As the ACOG website notes:

"It is crucial that obstetrician–gynecologists and other health care providers educate parents and patients on the benefits and safety of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination and offer HPV vaccines in their offices. A health care provider’s recommendation to vaccinate is a strong influence in parents’ decision making."

The drug companies that make Gardasil and Cervarix (another HPV vaccine) are potentially sacrificing $$$ that could be made supplying cancer drugs and other pharma products to the many people afflicted by HPV-associated diseases. That doesn't seem to occur to the authors of this book.

Meantime, on the horizon are new and improved HPV vaccines targeting even more virus subtypes (the current version of Gardasil targets 92% of the high-risk HPV strains), and vaccines to treat HPV-induced cancers. Antivaxers dread the idea of widespread use of anticancer vaccines, perhaps because they know it'll be a lot tougher to get the public to avoid an effective means of preventing or treating widespread deadly malignancies, as opposed to vaccine-preventable diseases like polio and measles which don't seem as important to modern parents who've never had to experience children made miserable or deathly ill by them.

Whether you choose to buy Holland's book or (like me) save money by reading a library copy, know that there are much better, fair-minded and accurate sources of information on the Internet. Particularly recommended are Science-Based Medicine, immunize.org, pkids.org, and the website on immunization sponsored by Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. For a book that answers virtually any question you might have on vaccines, using facts and good evidence while not taking sides on "the controversy", read Kristen Feemster's "Vaccines: What Everyone Needs To Know". ...more

Skimmed, seems to mostly contain alarmist nonsense (which you can probably guess by the title anyway) and standard anti-vaxx rhetoric that's not specific to the HPV vaccine, combined with a bunch of unverifiable anecdotes. The author is one of those parents with an autistic kid and no relevant credentials, that seems to incorrectly think vaccines cause autism even though we know it doesn't.

If you're looking for a book that will inform you about the HPV vaccine, this isn't it.
