  • The system used for keeping and distributing vaccines in good condition is called the 'cold chain‘…This consists of a series of storage and transport links, all of which are designed to keep the vaccine at the correct temperature until it reaches the user
  • Risks to vaccines of exposure to extremes in Temperature Compliance with vaccine manufacturer Assurance/confidence in potent product Ensuringmaximum benefit from immunisation
  •  it’s not just about developing safe and effective vaccines. It’s about getting vaccines to the right place, at the right time, in the right conditionThe 6 listed vaccines are sold at between Re 1 and Rs 1.50. For vaccine companies, big and small alike, making money at such price points, after high import duties on raw materials, most of which have to be imported, and an expensive production and distribution process, is getting to be a near impossible proposition. Thermostable vaccines
  • there is a global shift in attitudes in the Pharma industry toward disease prevention, rather than treatment.
  • A vaccine must be licensed first by the appropriateauthority for the use in the country. The vaccines/drugs licensing authority in India, i.e. NationalRegulatory Authority (NRA) is Drugs ControllerGeneral of India (DCGI) which is approved byWHO also. For licensing of a new vaccine, thevaccine manufacturer should conduct thephase I, II,and III trials and must submit their results to NRA forits approval.There are both central and state licensingauthorities. Good clinical practice (GCP) and ethicalguidelines (by ICMR) for approval exist. Licensingof products in India is by the Central LicensingApproval Authority (CLAA). The Drug TechnologyAdvisory Board (DATB) approves introduction ofvaccines into the immunization services, while allvaccine approval and clinical trials is by the CLAA.The state licensing authority inspects and grantslicensing for retail.
  • Long being regarded as an unattractive market, vaccines have re-emerged as successful growth driver for Big Pharma. The launch and rapid uptake of novel, high-price products such as Wyeth's Prevnar or Merck & Co's Gardasil, along with the emergence of novel vaccine technologies and favourable legislation have brought vaccines back into the main focus of pharmaceutical and biotech companies.
  • On launch, there is typically only one producer, who owns product and processintellectual property. This phase will have limited capacity, low demand, highproduction costs and high prices. During market penetration, new manufacturers willenter the market, either through their own development efforts or through licensing ofthe original manufacturer’s patent, and capacity will increase. Limited price tieringwill be possible. Once the product reaches maturity and the intellectual propertyprotection expires, there may be many manufacturers, both in the developing as wellas the industrialized world. Production costs are low and often there will beovercapacity so that availability is high and demand is global. Prices will be heavilytiered. 30
  • Wyeth and shanthabiotechnics
  • 2 things to notice—R&D , top product
  • India represents one of thr fastest growing vaccines market in the worldIt is currently the centre of attraction for all leading pharma majorsBirth of 24 million babies each year provides a big market for vaccinesGrowth more than traditional medicines
  • An estimated two out of every three immunised children in the world have received a vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute. As the risk of global pandemics grows, so does the potential market for new vaccines
  • Small no of companies
  • 6 in one..reduces the number of vaccines the child has to take…tetanus, pertussis, hep b, polio, influenza, diphtheria
  • Cadi 05 skin cancer
  • New methods of vaccine delivery needle free patches, edible vaccine, nasal
  • The advent of Gardasil (Merck/sanofiaventis) and Cerverix (GSK) in the prevention of cervical cancer, precancerous genital lesions and genital warts due to human papillomavirus (HPV), are a turning point in the history of vaccines. After Wyeth’s success with Prevnar, the first ever vaccine blockbuster, Gardasil (and second-in-line Cervarix from GSK) will compete for market penetration and market share in a totally new area in which itconfers 100% protection and hence create huge demand among the population at riskPublic organization like WHO, UNICEF as well as public-private alliances like GAVI are constantly working for spreading awareness and increasing the coverage of immunization.Emerging diseases like HPV, rotavirus, pneumococcal and meningococcal diseases are one of the major driving force of the market.Global funding mechanisms like Internatinal Finance Facility for Immunization and Advance market commitments have accelarated the development and manufacture of vaccines in developing countries
  • Regulation --NRA
  • With the exception of influenza, only two to three vaccine manufacturers compete for each disease. This lack of competition combined with public health requirements to guarantee a stable supply of vaccines has resulted in a recent upward shift of vaccine prices for specialty vaccines.
  • Prevent disease- reduces future cost, cost effective

  • Khhannamgardasilapbarodacervarix rural areas Misinformation about Side-Effects of Vaccines Controversy Surrounding Mercury-Containing VaccinesCampaigns Against Cervical Cancer Vaccines
  • The main future opportunities lie in the pneumococcal, meningococcaland HPV vaccine sectors, where there is a large medical need for better products. For pneumococcal and HPV vaccines, candidates offering a higher subtype coverage than existing products can be expected to yield excellent returns
  • A lot of advancements are taking place in the field of biotechnological research and manufacturing technologies which will play a dominating role further developments of this industry.
  • Adjuvants are substances that help avaccine to produce a strong protective response. They can also reduce thetime the body takes to mount a protective response and can make the immuneresponse more broadly protective against several related pathogensMany vaccines are formulated with adjuvants, which help modulate and stimulate the immune response (9). These compounds bind to the vaccineand aid retention at the site of injection or delivery to the lymph nodes. As a result, the release of the antigens to the surrounding tissues is slowed and a stronger immune response is achieved than would be generated by the vaccine alone. The predominant adjuvants are ‘alum’- based, containing a mixture of aluminum salts. However, there are novel adjuvants under investigation that can provide benefits over alum, such as the technology developed by Antigenics: QS-21, an adjuvant derived from tree bark (10). conjugation allows scientists to link (conjugate) the sugar moleculeson the outer envelopes of certain bacteria – such as the pneumococcus, themeningococcus, and the Hib bacterium – to strongly immunogenic “carrier” proteins.e.g. Prevnar (Wyeth), Menactra (Sanofi Pasteur)
  • An alternative to conventional vaccines is DNA vaccines, of which there is currently several in development.
  • Immunizations in India are currently restricted to a limited public vaccination schedule, with the insufficient healthcare infrastructure in rural areas contributing to low coverage rates. Commercial opportunities lie in providing premium vaccines to the emerging private sector and in partnering with domestic players.

  •  Every year 3 million deaths are prevented and 750,000 children are saved from disability by vaccines(WHO)  Why do we need vaccine?  Common communicable diseases  Geographic variation in disease spread  Every 1$ invested in childhood vaccine save 18$  Increased life expectancy to economic growth4
  • VACCINES  “A vaccine is any preparation intended to produce immunity to a disease by stimulating the production of antibodies. Vaccines include, for example, suspensions of killed or attenuated microorganisms, or products or derivatives of microorganisms.”- WHO.5
  • Vaccines vs Pharmaceuticals Vaccines Pharmaceuticals Regulatory Focus on prevention – not patients,  Focus on treatment – patient is but healthy subjects generally sick Key role for the government agencies  Key role for healthcare players  Very low acceptance of side effects  Acceptance of side effects varies by severity of disease Manufacturing  High manufacturing and supply chain  Medium manufacturing and supply complexity chain complexity (Cold Chain Management, complex (Easier to handle chemical synthesis biological processes) in most cases) Marketing/ Sales  Small Massive sales force commitment  Major sales through government Sales through physician as prescriber  Very few generic products Increasing generic threat (Due to manufacturing complexity)6
  • A Typical Cold Chain7
