U.S. panel to set priorities for H1N1 Swine flu Vaccines

Posted by venkatramseo on July 29, 2009

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Vaccine experts who advise the U.S. government are possible on Wednesday to put healthcare workers, pregnant women and patients with asthma and diabetes at the front of the line to get vaccinated touching the new pandemic H1N1 influenza.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices may also at its meeting inspect ways to manage a complicated U.S. flu season, with people receiving seasonal influenza immunizations alongside swine flu vaccines.

“I think at the end of the day we’ll have a firm idea who will be recommended to receive vaccine against novel H1N1,” Tom Skinner, a spokesman for the U.S. Centers for Disease protect and Prevention, said in a telephone interview.

“We might expect to see different sets of recommendations that take into account a convinced number of doses being available at any give time during our flu season.”

H1N1 swine flu is currently so widespread that the World Health Organization has stopped counting individual cases. Health experts are afraid it could worsen, particularly when the Northern Hemisphere’s influenza season starts in the autumn.

The U.S. government has tapered for 195 million doses of H1N1 flu vaccine for a possible autumn vaccination campaign. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said previous this month the government would foot the bill.

HHS has also contracted for 120 million doses of adjuvant, a multiple to stretch the number of doses of vaccine needed, and the ACIP, which advises the CDC and HHS on vaccine policy, may discuss various options for using the adjuvants.

5 companies are making H1N1 vaccine for the U.S. market — AstraZeneca’s MedImmune unit, Australia’s CSL Ltd, GlaxoSmithKline Plc, Novartis AG and Sanofi-Aventis SA.

It is not clear how much vaccine is going to be presented. Flu vaccines are made using an old-fashioned method — inoculating eggs with the virus, leasing it grow, and then purifying and inactivating it to build the vaccine.
