|HPV 16 L1 VLP (Group 1)||
The Vaccination Period for the base study encompassed Day 1 through Month 7, during which time study subjects in Group 1 were vaccinated (at Day 1, Month 2, and Month 6) with HPV (Human Papillomavirus) 16 Virus-Like Particle (VLP) Vaccine.
The Follow-up Period for the Base Study encompassed the follow-up of subjects who had received the HPV 16 VLP Vaccine from completion of the Vaccination Period at Month 7 through Month 48.
|Placebo (Group 2)||
The Vaccination Period for the base study encompassed Day 1 through Month 7, during which time study subjects in Group 2 were vaccinated (at Day 1, Month 2, and Month 6) with placebo.
The Follow-up Period for the Base Study encompassed the follow-up of subjects who had received placebo from completion of the Vaccination Period at Month 7 through Month 48.

Limitations and Caveats
|Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data|
