  Purpose

Infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) has been clearly established as the central cause of cervical cancer. This Phase IV, observer-blind study is designed to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of Cervarix™ in HIV infected females aged 15 to 25 years as compared to Merck's HPV vaccine (Gardasil®). For comparative purposes, a group of HIV negative females will also be evaluated. All subjects will receive the HPV vaccine (either Cervarix™ or Gardasil®) according to a three-dose schedule (Day 0, Week 6, Month 6).
