The prototype of this vaccine (Zhepu) was formulated in China (1992) and statistics reveal that till date around 120 million people have been vaccinated.

The vaccine showed appreciable results when tested on 200 children in Pune and if advertised properly to all the sections of the people, doctors and health care officials then it would save millions of lives.
