GSK resubmits BLA for Cervarix

Executive Summary

Finally responding to a December 2007 "complete response" letter from FDA, GlaxoSmithKline has re-filed its BLA for Cervarix, its vaccine to prevent cervical cancer and pre-cancer related to human papillomavirus types 16 and 18. Cervarix is approved in Europe and is the market leader in the U.K., ahead of Merck's competing vaccine, Gardasil.
