72. Wow...isn't that an interesting tidbit I just uncovered.
During the clinical trials, the data indicated that the only difference between the groups aged 10-15 vs. 16-23 years old was a slightly stronger response in the younger group (99.9% of the younger group developed an antibody response as opposed to 99.1% of the older group).

Interestingly enough, in researching that particular tidbit of information, I realized that in order for them to have that piece of information, the vaccine MUST HAVE BEEN TESTED ON GIRLS AGED 10-15 and imagine my surprise to find that 1151 girls between the ages of 10-15 were involved in the trials prior to approval without any of the scary side-effects that have been predicted by the anti-Gardasil folks.

Since you are so well versed in the potential side effects and methodology of the clinical trials, I'm shocked that you have never mentioned that.
