  2. 025: Development of an Inactivated Rotavirus Vaccine for Use in Global Immunization

    Release Date: 08-15-2012Open Date: 08-15-2012Due Date: 12-03-2012Close Date: 12-03-2012

    Background: The currently licensed oral rotavirus vaccines Rotarix™ and Rotateq™ are effective in reducing cases of severe diarrhea among children in high and middle income countries, but are significantly less effective in low income countries. In addition, both vaccines are associated with a low risk of diarrhea and intussusception among infants who receive the first dose of vaccine. To impr ...

  3. 026: Thermostable Dry Measles Vaccine Formulation for Sublingual Administration

    Release Date: 08-15-2012Open Date: 08-15-2012Due Date: 12-03-2012Close Date: 12-03-2012

    Background: Vaccines are one of the most powerful tools available for preventing disease. Measles vaccine has led to the elimination of endemic measles from the Western Hemisphere and a tremendous reduction in global mortality. However, the logistic difficulties inherent in vaccination by injection create barriers to high measles vaccine coverage. Vaccination by injection requires highly skilled v ...
