Disease rates declined among unvaccinated children as well as among those who were vaccinated, suggesting that the vaccine suppressed transmission of the infection in the unvaccinated population, thus offering the public health benefits of herd immunity. would require a vaccine that protects against multiple serogroups of meningococcal bacteria. Menactra vaccine contains three of these four serogroups, which cause approximately two thirds of meningococcal disease overall and 79 percent in the adolescent population. There is no vaccine against meningococcal disease caused by the B serogroup.
"With this third submission, we are on track to achieve our goal of submitting four new products for approval in 2003," said Igor Landau, Chairman of the Management Board of . "The various new products should complement our portfolio in key disease areas mainly diabetes, cancer and vaccines and are expected to substantially contribute to our growth in the coming years."
This submission of this novel vaccine by Pasteur, the vaccines business of , is the third new product submission by in 2003.

Approval Of MenactraTM First Candidate Quadrivalent Conjugate Meningococcal Vacc
About Conjugate Vaccine Technology
Menactra vaccine is the first quadrivalent conjugate candidate for the prevention of meningococcal meningitis, considered the most deadly form of the three main types of meningitis. This vaccine is designed to offer protection against four serogroups of meningococcal disease (A, C, Y, W 135).
The regulatory submission is based on results of six pivotal studies, involving more than 7,500 clinical trial participants that received Menactra vaccine (also called MCV 4). The vaccine has shown an excellent safety and immunogenicity profile. site in Swiftwater, Pennsylvania, to produce Menactra meningococcal vaccine. Of survivors, up to one in five suffer long term permanent disabilities such as hearing loss, brain Ny Yankees Cap White damage, and limb amputations. Although the disease is most common in children under age four, in the 1990s, incidence increased substantially among 15 to 24 year olds, and one study found a 22.5 percent fatality rate among people in this age group who contracted meningococcal disease.

The current FDA licensed meningococcal disease vaccine, Menomune(R) A/C/Y/W 135 (Meningococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine, Groups A, C, Y and W 135 Combined), is made from a long chain of polysaccharides that come from the outer coat of the meningococcus bacterium, providing a limited duration of immunity. ran a national campaign to immunize 15 million children under age 17 with a conjugate vaccine that offered protection against one serogroup (the C serogroup) of meningococcal bacteria. The campaign resulted in an 85% overall decline in cases and 90% reduction in deaths from meningococcal serogroup C New Era Winnipeg Jets
"We are extremely pleased that our efforts to develop a conjugate vaccine for meningococcal disease have resulted in filing a BLA with the FDA," said Michel DeWilde, Executive Vice President, Research Development, Pasteur. "Conjugate vaccines have been shown to induce a better and longer lasting immune response than polysaccharide vaccines, we believe Menactra vaccine offers the potential for substantial control of bacterial meningitis."
