MSD Wellcome Trust Hilleman Laboratories announces first project
Date:1/25/2011

's mission is to formulate life-saving vaccines in ways that allow their availability and sustainability to the impoverished populations who need them most," said Dr. Andrew Schiermeier, CEO at MEND. "Our collaboration with Hilleman Labs and the MSD vaccines group provides an excellent opportunity to leverage the technical expertise of the different groups with the aim of creating a product that will be far-better suited for developing country needs."

"This technology has the potential to be a real game changer in vaccine development and delivery," said Dr. David Heymann, Chairman of the UK's Health Protection Agency who also chairs the Strategic Advisory Group of the Hilleman Laboratories. "This kind of R&D is needed to make effective vaccines available in resource limited countries, so that they can be more easily used to decrease the impact of vaccine preventable diseases. There is tremendous synergy in bringing together the philanthropic, scientific and business prowess of these organizations and their funders to benefit so many of the world's poorest."

The World Health Organization estimates that annually from 10 percent up to 50 percent of vaccines may be wasted globally because of temperature control, shipping, and other logistical issues.

"Although a potential vaccine coming out of the Hilleman Laboratories would be for global needs, nearly 100,000 rotavirus deaths each year occur in India," said Dr. M. K. Bhan, Secretary to the Government of India, Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology. "The Hilleman Laboratories effort to extend the utility of rotavirus vaccine in poor countries is to be welcomed."
