US FDA licenses Sanofi Pasteur's new pediatric combination vaccine, pentacel

s for parents and pediatricians who want to reduce the stress of well-baby visits," said Tina Q. Tan, M.D., infectious disease specialist, Children's Memorial Hospital, Chicago. "Pertussis disease continues to remain a threat to young infants, who are at the highest risk for severe complications and death. With a four-dose primary series of Pentacel® vaccine, pediatricians can reduce the number of vaccination shots while providing protection against five diseases, including pertussis."

The immunogenicity of Pentacel® vaccine was compared to separately administered DAPTACEL, IPOL®[c] and ActHIB®[d] vaccines (studies P3T06 and M5A10), as well as to other single-entity vaccine formulations (study 494-01). The safety of Pentacel® vaccine was compared both to separately administered DAPTACEL, IPOL and ActHIB vaccines (study P3T06) and to other single-entity vaccine formulations (study 494-01).

In clinical studies, local and systemic reactions following administration of Pentacel® vaccine were reported at rates consistent with those of the separately administered vaccines used in each trial. The most common local and systemic adverse reactions to Pentacel® vac
