Write-up: Information has been received from an investigator from GLAXOSMITHKLINE (GSK) BIOLOGICS (manufacturer control # B0465767A) regarding a 24 year old female with bipolar disorder, depression, oedema hands and feet, hypertension, sore throat, hypothyroidism and viral infection with a history of 1 pre-term pregnancy and with a normal birth who entered a GSK clinical sponsored trial. On 09-MAR-2007 the patient was vaccinated IM with a first dose of Gardasil. Concomitant therapy included Ortho Tri-Cyclen, venlafaxine HCl, spironolactone, levothyroxine Na, carbamazepine, ibuprofen, diuretic (unspecified) and amoxicillin. On 09-APR-2007, a pregnancy test was positive. Her LMP was on 04-MAR-2007 and Ortho Tri-Cyclen, was used for contraception until 16-MAR-2007. On 01-MAY-2007 the patient experienced spontaneous abortion at 8.2 weeks of pregnancy. She was hospitalized for 2 days and the event was considered clinically significant. She was treated with dilation and curettage and the event resolved on 01-MAY-2007. It was noted that her partner had no abnormal medical or family history. The investigator considered that there was a reasonable possibility that the spontaneous abortion may have been caused by Gardasil because the patient received the injection within 30 days of the pregnancy. The patient was withdrawn from the study due to the spontaneous abortion and subsequent study administration discontinued. No further information is available.
