FDA Approval Pushes Novartis Into 21st Century Vaccine Development
By Trisha Gladd, editor, Pharmaceutical Online and Bioresearch Online
In 2009, the world experienced a global threat in the form of H1N1. Despite a prompt response to the need for a vaccine in the United States, it was still not available until six months later and not enough doses were even produced to cover all Americans. During the year-long battle with the deadly virus, the CDC estimates between 8,870 and 18,300 people died due to H1N1-related complications. In the world of influenza vaccine production using chicken eggs, the response experienced during the H1N1 outbreak is not uncommon. Is this the best our industry can do? Novartis says NO.
