Date:6/23/2008

- Pentacel(R) vaccine is the first 5-in-1 pediatric combination for immunization against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio and Haemophilus

influenzae type b (Hib) -

SWIFTWATER, Pa. and LYON, France, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines division of the sanofi-aventis Group, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has licensed Pentacel(R), Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Adsorbed, Inactivated Poliovirus and Haemophilus b Conjugate (Tetanus Toxoid Conjugate) Vaccine. Pentacel(R) vaccine is indicated for active immunization against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, poliomyelitis, and invasive disease due to Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib). Pentacel(R) vaccine is approved for use in infants and children 6 weeks through 4 years of age (prior to fifth birthday).

Pentacel(R) vaccine is the first and only four-dose diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis (DTaP)-based combination vaccine for use in infants and young children in the U.S. that includes both poliovirus and Hib antigens.

Pentacel(R) vaccine is approved for administration as a four-dose series at 2, 4, 6 and 15-18 months of age. The first dose may be given as early as 6 weeks of age. According to the current Recommended Childhood Immunization Schedule of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), up to 23 injections are needed by the time a child reaches 18 months of age with single-entity vaccines. The use of Pentacel(R) vaccine could reduce that number of shots by seven.
