No Takers for India's First Bird Flu Vaccine

Bhopal: More than six months has passed since a research institute here developed the first vaccine in India against bird flu//. But there seem to be no takers for its formula or even its doses, prepared after the avian influenza scare last year.

The High Security Animal Disease Laboratory (HSADL) here, which developed the vaccine in July 2006, has preserved about 100,000 doses of the vaccine, each costing 27 paise.

It was Pradhan who led a special team of scientists that swung into action, toiling day and night on the vaccine and developed it in less than six months after the outbreak.

"The cost of the vaccine has been worked out at 27 paise per dose. It is expected to go up to 35 paise including the trader's profit and cost of transportation. But it will be for the company manufacturing the vaccine to decide on the selling price," Pradhan said.

Talking about the efficacy of the vaccine, he said: "The vaccine can be used immediately after a bird flu outbreak to control the spread of the virus as well as for vaccination in anticipation of an outbreak.

"The immune response is good and the protection offered by the vaccine has been found to be above 90 percent. The prot
