Russia Chooses Inactivated Polio Vaccine from Sanofi Pasteur for Primary Immunization of all Infants
Date:11/12/2008

demy of Medical Sciences. "IPV fits perfectly with the Russian childhood immunization calendar. DTP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis) vaccine and IPV will be administered during the same pediatrician visit. The existing high DTP vaccination coverage will ensure the success of IPV vaccination."

Over 50 polio-free countries are using IPV

An increasing number of polio-free countries are using IPV for their national immunization programs which is becoming the international health standard of care for polio vaccination. In 2007, Mexico was the first Latin American country to choose IPV in a national immunization program with sanofi pasteur's IPV containing pediatric combination vaccine, Pentaxim(R) (Diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, inactivated poliomyelitis vaccine, Haemophilus influenzae type b conjugate vaccine). Turkey also chose to include Pentaxim(R) in its national immunization program.

In Indonesia the World Health Organization (WHO) is conducting a pilot program to evaluate the switch from OPV to IPV in a tropical setting, for which sanofi pasteur is donating 1.5 million doses of IPV over 5 years.

Committed to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative for 20 years

Sanofi Pasteur has been a partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative since its founding by WHO in 1988.

- Since 1988, Sanofi Pasteur has been a leading provider of

OPV, supplying over 600 million vaccine doses in 2007, helping to

reduce the number of polio cases by 99% with an estimated five million

people escaping paralysis(1).

- Between 1997 and 2005 Sanofi Pasteur donated over 120 million doses of

oral polio vaccine to help eradicate polio in Africa (Nigeria is the

only remaining endemic country in Africa).

- In 2005, Sanofi Pasteur developed a novel monovalent Oral Polio Vaccine

type 1 or mOPV1 following urgent requests from the WHO. Fifty million

doses of mOPV 1 were
