First Results From Ongoing Phase III Trial Show Malaria Vaccine Candidate, RTS,S* Reduces the Risk of Malaria by Half in African Children Aged 5 to 17 Months
Date:10/18/2011

Witty, CEO, GSK said: "These data bring us to the cusp of having the world's first malaria vaccine, which has the potential to significantly improve the outlook for children living in malaria endemic regions across Africa. The addition of a malaria vaccine to existing control interventions such as bed nets and insecticide spraying could potentially help prevent millions of cases of this debilitating disease. It could also reduce the burden on hospital services, freeing up much needed beds to treat other patients who often live in remote villages, with little or no access to healthcare. Today's results are a testament to the dedication and tenacity of many scientists, led at GSK by Jean Stephenne and his vaccine team, including Joe Cohen, the co-inventor of RTS,S, in partnership with many others from across the world. Development is however only half the task, but GSK remains committed to further research into malaria and most importantly, to ensuring that this vaccine will reach those who need it."

Christopher Elias, president and CEO of PATH , said: "This trial represents a powerful example of the high-quality science that is moving us toward controlling and someday potentially eliminating malaria. The results made public today are encouraging and certainly something to feel good about, but let's also remember the human dimension. The PATH Malaria Vaccine Initiative's mission is to deliver a vaccine to the children of Africa so that instead of carrying near lifeless babies to crowded pediatric wards, mothers will carry their infants past noisy school playgrounds to bustling immunization clinics. Today, we are an important step closer to realizing that vision, and we look forward to continuing our drive, together with our partners, to bring this vaccine home to the children of Africa."

Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, said: "A vaccine is the simplest, most cost-effective way to save lives. These resul
