Gardasil (Merck & Co.), also known as Gardisil or Silgard, is a vaccine for use in the prevention of certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV), specifically HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18. HPV types 16 and 18 cause an estimated 70% of cervical cancers and are responsible for most HPV-induced anal, vulvar, vaginal, and penile cancer cases. HPV types 6 and 11 cause an estimated 90% of genital warts cases. Though it does not treat existing infection, vaccination is still recommended for HPV positive individuals, as it may protect against one or more different strains of the disease. The HPV strains that Gardasil protects against are sexually transmitted. It was approved in the US on June 8, 2006 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA recommends vaccination before adolescence and potential sexual activity.

OshKosh B’Gosh is an American children’s apparel company founded in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 1895. It is currently a subsidiary of Carter’s.
Originally a small-town manufacturer of adult work clothing, it has become best known for its children’s clothing, especially bib overalls. The original children’s overalls, dating from the early twentieth century, were intended to let parents dress their children like their fathers. According to the company, sales of the product increased after Miles Kimball, an Oshkosh-based mail-order catalog, featured a pair of the overalls in its national catalog in 1960. As a result, OshKosh began to sell their products through department stores and expanded their children’s line. Children’s clothing made up fifteen percent of the company’s sales in 1979; by 1993 that number was 95 percent.
Carter’s, Inc. (NYSE: CRI), also known as the William Carter Company, is a major American manufacturer of children’s apparel. It was founded in 1865 by William Carter. Previously, the company also made underwear for adults. Carters acquired competitor OshKosh B’Gosh in 2005.

In telecommunications, 4G is the fourth generation of mobile phone mobile communications standards. It is a successor of the third generation (3G) standards. A 4G system provides mobile ultra-broadband Internet access, for example to laptops with USB wireless modems, to smartphones, and to other mobile devices. Conceivable applications include amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing and 3D television. Recently, Android and Windows-enabled cellular devices have fallen in the 4G category. One base advantage of 4G is that it can at any point of travelling time provide an internet data transfer rate higher than any existing cellular services (excluding broadband and Wi-Fi connections)

Eculizumab (INN and USAN, trade name Soliris) is a monoclonal antibody directed against the complement protein C5. Eculizumab has been shown to be effective in treating paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), a rare and sometimes life threatening disease of the blood, and was first approved for this indication. It was also approved for atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome (aHUS), a disease that causes abnormal blood clots to form in the kidneys, near the end of 2011.
Eculizumab is a recombinant humanized monoclonal IgG2/4 antibody that specifically binds to the complement protein C5, inhibiting its cleavage by the C5 convertase which prevents the generation of the terminal complement complex C5b-9. It is this terminal complement complex that causes intravascular hemolysis in people with (PNH).
Eculizumab is a product of Alexion Pharmaceuticals and was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on March 16, 2007 and the European Medicines Agency on June 20, 2007.
According to Forbes magazine, Soliris, at $409,500 a year, is the world’s single most expensive drug.
VH1 entertains you with your favorite tv shows, music videos, celebrity news, photos, live performances and special events.
VH1 or Vh1 (known as VH-1: Video Hits One from 1985 to 1994) is an American cable television network based in New York City. Launched on January 1, 1985 in the old space of Turner Broadcasting’s short-lived Cable Music Channel, the original purpose of the channel was to build on the success of MTV by playing music videos, but targeting a slightly older demographic than its sister channel, focusing on the lighter, softer side of popular music. The channel was originally created by Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment, at the time a division of Warner Communications and owner of MTV. Both VH1 and its sister channel MTV are currently part of the MTV Networks division of corporate parent Viacom. While VH1 still occasionally plays music videos and the Top 20 Video Countdown, its more recent claim to fame has been in the area of music-related reality programming, such as Behind the Music, the I Love the… series, the Celebreality block of programming, and the channel’s overall focus on popular culture.
