Research and Markets: Fluzone IntraDermal (Seasonal Influenza Vaccines) Forecast and Market Analysis

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

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

GlobalData has released its new PharmaPoint Drug Evaluation report, Fluzone IntraDermal (Seasonal Influenza Vaccines) Forecast and Market Analysis. 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 IntraDemal, GlobalData projects a dramatic shift favoring the adoption of such vaccines over the traditional intramuscular vaccines. GlobalData also anticipates that manufacturers that launch quadrivalent formulations will steal market share, patient share, and revenue from the trivalent influenza vaccines currently available.

Fluzone ID is an inactivated, trivalent influenza vaccine that is administered via intradermal injection. Fluzone ID's production is similar to other inactivated, split virus influenza vaccines, but its route of administration differentiates it from its competitors. This novel route of administration uses a needle that is 90% smaller than the one used for intramuscular injection. The site of injection (i.e., the dermis) also has an increased number of immune cells compared to muscle tissue, which results in a more robust immune response for intradermal injection relative to intramuscular route of administration. Sanofi, which distributes the vaccine in the US and Europe, hopes to leverage these advantages to obtain patient share.
