Dengue Vaccine Initiative welcomes latest progress in vaccine development

ccurate diagnostic testing and common misdiagnosis."

Dengue is the most common mosquito-borne viral disease, with more than 2.5 billion people at risk for the disease globally, resulting in an estimated 21,000 deaths per year. Dengue symptoms can range from mild, flu-like symptoms to severe circulatory failure, coma and death. Most outbreaks occur during the rainy season in endemic countries like Thailand and Brazil, when mosquito populations are high.

Currently, there are several dengue vaccines in various stages of development, with four candidates, including Sanofi Pasteur's, in clinical trial stages. The results of this first study, a phase IIb clinical trial, are not yet sufficient to prove or disprove efficacy of CYD-TDV. However, Sanofi has already begun phase III studies among 31,000 children in Asia and Latin America. These studies will provide further information, including pivotal efficacy results and additional safety data.

"In addition to saving lives and reducing illness, a dengue fever vaccine, once introduced, will have significant positive impacts on the global economy," added Dr. Orin Levine, Executive Director of the International Vaccine Access Center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. "The cost of dengue fever in the Americas alone is estimated to be $2.1 billion annually, and the burden of lost wages and productivity, along with the cost of healthcare, takes a great toll in endemic countries across the globe."
