Rotavirus vaccine developed in India demonstrates strong efficacy
Date:5/14/2013

continued efficacy in the second year of life.

Infants enrolled in the study received ROTAVAC and the Universal Immunization Programme (UIP) vaccines, including oral polio vaccine (OPV). When the immune responses to OPV were tested, the result showed that infants receiving OPV at the same time as ROTAVAC generated comparable immune responses to all three polio serotypes as the infants receiving OPV without ROTAVAC; this result supports the concurrent administration of OPV and ROTAVAC.

"Vaccines work to save and protect children from diseases like rotavirus for a lifetime," said Bill Gates, Co-Chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. "This public-private partnership is an exemplary model of how to develop affordable technologies that save lives."

The vaccine development partnership was supported by DBT, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Research Council of Norway, and the UK Department for International Development. Bharat Biotech invested important technical, manufacturing, and financial resources towards vaccine development. ROTAVAC is an oral vaccine and is administered to infants in a three-dose course at the ages of 6, 10, and 14 weeks. It is given alongside routine immunizations in the UIP vaccines recommended at these ages.

"ROTAVAC represents the successful research and development of a novel vaccine from the developing world with global standards," said Dr Krishna M. Ella, Chairman and Managing Director of Bharat Biotech. "ROTAVAC is a testament of our strong vision and commitment to develop affordable health care solutions for infectious diseaseswe are proud, yet humbled by our contribution to this social innovation project and global public health priority. We are thankful to all the partners in the Rotavirus Vaccine Development ProjectDBT, the Indian Council of Medical Research, PATH, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, NIH , CDC, and Stanford Universityfor their valuable support in this unique internatio
