Date:4/28/2008

ly involved in projects in the U.S. and Europe with the goal of developing a vaccine to protect against a pandemic influenza virus.

In June 2007, sanofi pasteur completed construction of a new manufacturing facility that is expected to more than double its capacity to produce both seasonal and pandemic influenza when it begins production in early 2009. Sanofi Pasteur leads the way in pandemic preparedness with the first and only U.S. licensed avian influenza vaccine for humans and has successfully achieved manufacturing scale-up of this first generation vaccine using proven, licensed and existing technology.

About Pandemic Influenza

An influenza pandemic is a global epidemic of an especially virulent virus, newly infectious for humans, and for which there is no preexisting immunity. This is why pandemic strains have such potential to cause severe morbidity and mortality. The H5N1 viral strain has been identified by global health authorities as being a potential cause of a pandemic. In an attempt to minimize the impact of a pandemic, many countries are developing national and transnational plans against a possible influenza pandemic situation. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there have been 381 cases of avian influenza transmitted to humans since 2003, with 240 resulting in death.

Sanofi Pasteur and Pandemic Preparedness

Sanofi Pasteur is committed to global pandemic preparedness. Sanofi Pasteur is investing in major expansions of its seasonal influenza vaccine production facilities in the U.S. and France, which could be used to produce pandemic influenza vaccine if the need arises.
