Mar 27, 2013
 
British scientists have developed a new vaccine against foot-and-mouth diseasethat is safer and easier to manufacture, an advance they believe should greatly increase production capacity and reduce costs.
The new vaccine does not require live virus in its production - an important consideration as foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is extremely infectious and vaccine facilities handling virus samples are difficult to secure.

Two doses of HPV vaccine not 3 may offer similar protection
Apr. 30, 2013
 
Two doses of the vaccine against human papilloma virus (HPV) may work just as well as the recommended three doses in protecting against infection, a new study from Canada suggests.
In the study, girls who received two doses of the HPV vaccine had just as good of an immune response to the vaccine as women who received three doses, even three years after vaccination. In studies of women, the HPV vaccine reduces the risk of developing early signs of cervical cancer and genital warts.
The new study is published today (April 30) in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
 
Dendreon's cancer vaccine sales drop as competition heats up
May 9, 2013
 
(Reuters) - Sales of Dendreon Corp's prostate cancer vaccine Provenge declined in the first quarter despite efforts by the biotechnology drugs maker to shore up flagging volumes.
The company's shares fell 14 percent to $4.06 in morning trade on the Nasdaq. They touched a low of $3.95.
Dendreon is watched closely due to the immense potential of cancer vaccines, but Provenge sales have never really taken off due to physician uncertainty about reimbursement and limited manufacturing capacity.
The emergence of newer prostate cancer drugs have also squeezed the vaccine's potential. Competing drugs, such as Medivation Inc's Xtandi and Johnson & Johnson's Zytiga, have the added advantage of being easier to use.
 
Results of the ROTAVAC Rotavirus Vaccine Study in India
May 15, 2013
 
The Government of India's Department of Biotechnology (DBT) and Bharat Biotech announced positive results from a Phase III clinical trial of a rotavirus vaccine developed and manufactured in India. Data from the trial, presented today at the International Symposium on Rotavirus Vaccines for India—The Evidence and the Promise, showed ROTAVAC to have an excellent safety and efficacy profile.
The clinical study demonstrates for the first time that the India-developed rotavirus vaccine ROTAVAC is efficacious in preventing severe rotavirus diarrhoea in low-resource settings in India. ROTAVAC significantly reduced severe rotavirus diarrhoea by more than half—56 percent during the first year of life, with protection continuing into the second year of life. Moreover, the vaccine also showed impact against severe diarrhoea of any cause.
