Information about a HPV vaccine study published in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics

Comment: An article published in the journal Indian Journal of Medical Ethics, authored by an alleged ”Lars Andersson, at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Karolinska Institutet”, claims that HPV vaccination could be behind an apparent increase in cervical cancer. Karolinska Institutet strongly rejects this study.

The head at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology Håkan Westerblad at Karolinska Institutet says in an interview published in the Swedish journal Läkartidningen (in Swedish only) that there is no such person as “Lars Andersson“ either employed or affiliated with the department.

Karolinska Institutet has contacted the Indian journal, which has now removed the link to KI in the article.
