Bharat Book Bureau: PharmaPoint: Seasonal Influenza Vaccines Italy Drug Forecast and Market Analysis

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Summary "PharmaPoint: Seasonal Influenza Vaccines Italy Drug 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 IntraDermal, 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.

The Italian influenza vaccine market is valued at approximately $55.8m in 2012. The expected drivers of growth include the launch of quadrivalent influenza vaccines and an increase in the elderly population.

The market leaders are Novartis' adjuvanted trivalent influenza vaccines, Fluad and Influpozzi Adiuvato. The squalene adjuvant in these vaccines boosts the immune response of elderly recipients, who often fail to get adequately immunized by typical influenza vaccines. This improved immunogenicity has allowed Fluad and Influpozzi Adiuvato to harness a large share of the elderly market in Italy.
