High Growth Reported for the Commercial and Pipeline Insight: Vaccines for Adults and the Elderly - New blockbuster opportunities ahead

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 5, 2008) - Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report related to the Pharmaceutical industry industry is available in its catalogue.

Commercial and Pipeline Insight: Vaccines for Adults and the Elderly - New blockbuster opportunities ahead

http://www.reportlinker.com/p091765/Commercial-and-Pipeline-Insight-Vaccines-for-Adults-and-the-Elderly---New-blockbuster-opportunities-ahead.html

Introduction

Vaccines have re-emerged as successful revenue generators for Big Pharma, with adults and the elderly now increasingly coming into focus as the next big opportunity in this sector. An aging population, rising disease awareness and new technologies to overcome the scientific hurdles linked to the weakened immune response in the elderly are all contributing factors.

Scope

-Assessment of pneumococcal and zoster disease incidence, in-depth analysis of existing vaccines and key pipeline compounds

-Review of current and expected future immunization guidelines as well as existing and forecast immunization rates

-10-year sales forecast on a population basis for Zostavax, Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax-23

-Overview of current booster vaccine recommendations and commercial landscape with analysis of future market drivers

Highlights

Following the great success of Wyeth's heptavalent pneumococcal vaccine Prevnar in the infant sector, Datamonitor believes that Prevnar 13 could achieve blockbuster status in adults and elderly alone, if a superior efficacy compared to Pneumovax 23 is confirmed in ongoing clinical trials.

Merck & Co's Zostavax is the only available vaccine for the prevention of shingles and will continue to enjoy a monopoly in this promising market due to a lack of pipeline competitors. Datamonitor predicts peak sales between $1.5 and $2 billion.

Sanofi Pasteur and GSK are the leading players in the booster vaccines market. Overall, Datamonitor predicts significant growth potential in this sector, based on both geographic expansion of existing booster indications as well as the potential introduction of additional booster vaccinations for new indications.

Reasons to Purchase

-Size the available market opportunities and identify the unmet medical needs when immunizing an elderly patient population

-Gain insight into key opinion leaders' thinking on vaccines for the elderly

-Understand and identify the key challenges to achieving a better penetration of the next big opportunity in the vaccine area

CHAPTER 3 PNEUMOCOCCAL VACCINATION IN ADULTS AND ELDERLY 23
Summary 23
Disease background 23
Epidemiology 25
Invasive pneumococcal disease is associated with high incidence and death
rates 25
The elderly are at high risk of infection and show highest death rates
associated with invasive pneumococcal disease 26
The introduction of childhood vaccination with Prevnar has also reduced the
incidence of invasive pneumococcal disease caused by vaccine serotypes in
the elderly 29

zoster infections every year 91
So far, there is no clear evidence of an increase in shingles incidence
following routine infant varicella vaccination; however, more data are
needed 93
