Sanofi : Merck and Sanofi to Present Three New Studies Highlighting Combination Pediatric Vaccines at IDWeek 2020

10/21/2020 | 07:58am EST

KENILWORTH - The MSP Vaccine Company, a joint venture between Merck, known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, and Sanofi Pasteur, the global vaccines unit of Sanofi, will present new results from three U.S.-based studies at IDWeek 2020, taking place virtually from October 21 to 25.

These studies explore combination pediatric vaccines and highlight parents' perceptions of the vaccination schedule and combination vaccines, physicians' attitudes towards combination vaccines, and variations in co-administration of combination and monovalent vaccines.

'By exploring healthcare professional and parental attitudes toward combination vaccines, we are hoping to better understand the potential utilization of combination vaccinations as well as the barriers that may prevent timeliness and completion of the recommended immunization schedule in infants. We believe the healthcare community will find these studies and their results to be very interesting,' says Michelle Goveia, M.D., Executive Director Medical Affairs at Merck.

'These studies provide important insights into perceptions of physicians and parents on the current use of combination vaccines for infants and children and will hopefully help lead to timely and improved vaccination rates. This is important for now, and in the future, as achieving this goal is challenging given the current pandemic,' says Monica Mercer, M.D., Senior Director Scientific and Medical Affairs at Sanofi Pasteur.

The following abstracts are currently available for meeting attendees viewing, and the full presentations (including audio and/or poster PDFs) will become available on October 21, 2020: Parental Perceptions of the Childhood Vaccination Schedule and Combination Vaccines in the United States (US) Authors: Tanaz Petigara, Xinyi Ng, Ya-Ting Chen, Jyoti Aggarwal, Jenna Bhaloo, Michelle Goveia, David Johnson, Gary Marshall

About the MSP Vaccine Company

The MSP Vaccine Company is a U.S.-based joint-partnership between Merck and Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines unit of Sanofi, and draws upon both companies' experience for the development, manufacturing and marketing of VAXELIS (Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis, Inactivated Poliovirus, Haemophilus b Conjugate and Hepatitis B Vaccine).

About VAXELIS (Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis, Inactivated Poliovirus, Haemophilus b Conjugate and Hepatitis B Vaccine)

VAXELIS, the first and only hexavalent vaccine in the U.S., was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in December 2018 and includes antigens for diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), and poliomyelitis from Sanofi Pasteur and antigens for H. influenzae type b and hepatitis B from Merck. The vaccine is indicated for active immunization to prevent diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, and invasive disease due to Haemophilus influenzae type b. VAXELIS is approved for use as a 3-dose series in children 6 weeks through 4 years of age (prior to the 5th birthday). Merck and Sanofi are working to maximize production of VAXELIS to allow for a sustainable supply to meet anticipated U.S. demand. VAXELIS product availability is expected mid-2021.

These statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of the company's management and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties.

Sanofi Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts. These statements include projections and estimates and their underlying assumptions, statements regarding plans, objectives, intentions and expectations with respect to future financial results, events, operations, services, product development and potential, and statements regarding future performance. Forward-looking statements are generally identified by the words 'expects', 'anticipates', 'believes', 'intends', 'estimates', 'plans' and similar expressions. Although Sanofi's management believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, investors are cautioned that forward-looking information and statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond the control of Sanofi, that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, the forward-looking information and statements. These risks and uncertainties include among other things, the uncertainties inherent in research and development, future clinical data and analysis, including post marketing, decisions by regulatory authorities, such as the FDA or the EMA, regarding whether and when to approve any drug, device or biological application that may be filed for any such product candidates as well as their decisions regarding labelling and other matters that could affect the availability or commercial potential of such product candidates, the fact that product candidates if approved may not be commercially successful, the future approval and commercial success of therapeutic alternatives, Sanofi's ability to benefit from external growth opportunities, to complete related transactions and/or obtain regulatory clearances, risks associated with intellectual property and any related pending or future litigation and the ultimate outcome of such litigation, trends in exchange rates and prevailing interest rates, volatile economic and market conditions, cost containment initiatives and subsequent changes thereto, and the impact that COVID-19 will have on us, our customers, suppliers, vendors, and other business partners, and the financial condition of any one of them, as well as on our employees and on the global economy as a whole. Any material effect of COVID-19 on any of the foregoing could also adversely impact us. This situation is changing rapidly and additional impacts may arise of which we are not currently aware and may exacerbate other previously identified risks. The risks and uncertainties also include the uncertainties discussed or identified in the public filings with the SEC and the AMF made by Sanofi, including those listed under 'Risk Factors' and 'Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements' in Sanofi's annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2019.
