GARDASIL™ Vaccine Impact in Population Study

Time perspective: The study will be conducted using data collected both
retrospectively/concurrently from registries and prospectively by questionnaire survey.

Safety Monitoring: An expert panel on teratology consisting of one teratologist from each of
the participating countries will review all available medical records related to any
congenital anomalies to search for any emerging patterns that may be indicative of an
association between GARDASIL™ exposure in the mother and the subsequent congenital anomalies
in the babies.
