Immunogenicity and Safety Study of GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals' HPV Vaccine (580299) Co-administrated With a Commercially Available Vaccine in Healthy Female Adolescents
- Subjects who the investigator believes that they and/or their parents/legally
acceptable representatives (LARs) can and will comply with the requirements of the
protocol (e.g. completion of the diary cards, return for follow-up visits) should be

childbearing potential, she must practice adequate contraception for at least 30 days
prior to vaccination, have a negative pregnancy test and continue such precautions

within 30 days before and 30 days after each dose of vaccine. Administration of
routine vaccines such as meningococcal, inactivated influenza, diphtheria/tetanus

study vaccine is allowed.

period (up to the Month 12 telephone contact), in which the subject has been or will
be exposed to an investigational or a non-investigational product (pharmaceutical
product or device).
- A subject planning to become pregnant, likely to become pregnant (as determined by
the investigator) or planning to discontinue contraceptive precautions during the
study period and up to two months after the last vaccine dose.

vaccine other than that foreseen by the study protocol during the study period.
