Meningococcal Vaccines Market Expected to Reach USD 4.4 Billion Globally in 2022: Transparency Market Research

Albany, NY, April 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Meningococcal disease is caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis and occurs sporadically throughout the world with seasonal variations. It accounts for a proportion of endemic bacterial meningitis, which can progress very rapidly leading to death within 24 hours from the onset of symptoms. The disease is often misinterpreted as common flu in most of the cases. Five out of the several serogroups are known to cause meningococcal disease. The serogroups responsible for causing the disease comprise A, B, C, Y and W-135. The causative agent N. meningitidis is commonly found in the nasopharynx of humans and gets transmitted through droplet inhalation by means of close contact such as exposure to smokers, crowded living conditions such as dormitories, certain inherited disorders of the immune system, functional/anatomical asplenia or through intimate oral contact among others. According to the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Association, every year, meningitis affects almost 500,000 people globally, primarily affecting toddlers, infants and young adults, due to weaker immune system.

High cost of few but vital vaccines, such as Bexsero, and need for efficient cold chain logistics to maintain safety and efficacy of the vaccine are expected to be some of the major factors posing a challenge to the adequate uptake of these vaccines.
