Cervarix stable on transient exposure to higher temperatures

The HPV vaccine Cervarix, currently being issued in the UK, has been shown to be very stable upon long-term storage at 2-8 degrees, with or without transient exposure to higher temperatures (up to 37 degrees C). This will be welcome news for under-resourced countries where cold storage facilities may be limited.
