Sanofi Pasteur To Launch Meningococcal Vaccine In China

This article was originally published in PharmAsia News

Executive Summary

Sanofi Pasteur will soon launch its meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine A and C (Menomune A/C) in China, heating up the market after meningococcal vaccine was included in the country's expanded immunity program. According to a China CDC official, as domestic meningococcal vaccine cannot meet the expanded demand, approval of Menomune A/C will provide consumers with more choices. Although local vaccines costing some 20 yuan are administered free for children, the Sanofi Pasteur product will be sold at 128 yuan. Menomune A/C is the only imported meningococcal vaccine approved in China to date and the company targets sales of 2 million doses in the next five years. (Click here for more - Chinese Language)
