Storage costs may hamper vaccine use

Thursday April 24th, 2014

Some vaccines could be used more cheaply in poor countries if the cost of storage was reduced, campaigners have warned.

New research suggests that at least one vaccine, against tetanus, could be used without cold storage.

The findings were released by Médecins Sans Frontières in advance of World Immunisation Week.

The organisation said pharmaceutical companies probably had information about the heat sensitivity of other vaccines.

The organisation said a study by its research arm, Epicentre, has shown that a tetanus toxoid vaccine stayed effective for up to 30 days in a controlled temperature chain in conditions reaching 40C.

The study was conducted in Chad and involved a vaccine from the Serum Institute of India.
