Russia registers two swine flu vaccines, influvir and pandeflu
Russia has officially registered two domestic vaccines against swine flu, said the Russian federal service for oversight in health care and social development (Roszdravnadzor).
"Today the following vaccines made by NPO Microgene against the A/H1N1 strain have been officially registered under the current laws: influvir, a live monovalent flu vaccine, and pandeflu, an inactivated subunit adsorbed monovalent flu vaccine," the agency said on Tuesday evening.
"These products can now be used for immunization of adults, which opens up totally new opportunities in fighting the А/H1N1 virus," the statement said.
The registration of the domestic swine flu vaccines attests to "the great scientific potential of Russian academics, good prospects for the national pharmaceutical industry and a fundamentally new governmental approach to solving this problem," said Nikolai Yurgel, the head of Roszdravnadzor.
At a meeting on October 15 Roszdravnadzor experts will examine the materials from the pre-clinic and clinic studies of other pandemic vaccines being developed by Petrovaks, the agency said.
Russia is developing four swine flu vaccines of two types, live and inactivated.
