Research and Markets: Optaflu (Seasonal Influenza Vaccine) Forecast and Market Analysis

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of GlobalData's new report "Optaflu (Seasonal Influenza Vaccine) Forecast and Market Analysis" to their offering.

Seasonal Influenza is a respiratory infection caused by influenza virus that results in mild to severe symptoms, such as fever, cold and cough. The market is heavily driven by the sales of prophylactic vaccine treatments to prevent infection. Currently, trivalent intramuscular vaccines such as Sanofi's Fluzone and Vaxigrip, GlaxoSmithKline's Fluarix and FluLaval and Novartis' Fluvirin garner the majority stake of the market. However, with the entrance of vaccines with novel routes of administration, such as AstraZeneca's intranasal FluMist and Sanofi's Fluzone IntraDermal, the authors project a dramatic shift favoring the adoption of such vaccines over the traditional intramuscular vaccines. The authors also anticipate that manufacturers that launchquadrivalent formulations will steal market share, patient share, and revenue from the trivalent influenza vaccines currently available.

Optaflu is a trivalent, inactivated vaccine designed for immunization against seasonal influenza viruses. The cell culture-based manufacturing process differentiates Optaflu from its competitors. The viral subtypes present in the vaccine are cultivated in a Madin Darby Canine Kidney (MDCK) cell line that has been adapted for growth in suspension in serum-free, protein-free conditions. Optaflu is marketed by Novartis, and it is currently approved for administration to adults in the EU. Optaflu, marketed as Flucelvax in the US, gained FDA approval in November 2012.
