Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Sanofi Pasteur, the pharmaceutical company that sponsored the development of the vaccine, has announced that it will be commercially available by July 2015.
At present, no licensed vaccine is available to prevent dengue, a mosquito-borne disease. This is the first dengue vaccine to reach phase 3 trial, the last stage of clinical testing, according to a study in the British medical journal The Lancet (11 July).
