Sanofi has pledged an investment of INR 4.6 billion (USD 85.19 million) towards the facility and expects an annual production rate of 60 million Insuman cartridges in the first 2-3 years.

Shantha Launches Paediatric Pentavalent Vaccine, Shan5

Sanofi Pasteur launched Shan5, its paediatric pentavalent vaccine developed and manufactured by its Indian affiliate Shantha. It is a fully-liquid five-in-one vaccine that provides effective protection for children from six weeks of age against five diseases, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, Hib and hepatitis B. The launch of Shan5 vaccine received prequalification status from the World Health Organization (WHO) in April 2014. Shan5’s prequalification gives many more children in India access to the latest fully-liquid, 5-in-1 vaccine. Further, the prequalification helps Shan5 secure the supply of pentavalent combination vaccines in over 50 emerging and low-income countries.
