The antiflu vaccine developed in Russia is as good as Western
The antiflu vaccine developed in Russia is as good as Western -- representatives of the medical community voiced this opinion at the RIA Novosti press conference on Tuesday. "Our vaccine is as efficacious as Western. And besides, thanks to the lower doze of antigen, it is safer", Natalya Ilyina, chief physician of the Immunology Institute clinic, said of the Grippol vaccine. It is produced by the federal state enterprise Microgen Scientific-Industrial Association. The leading enterprise in the field of medical biotechnologies, Microgen is Russia's only maker of the antiflu vaccine. "We can be duly proud that Russia is among the nine countries-makers of the antiflu vaccine", said Arkadi Nekrasov, laboratory head at the Immunology Institute. In turn, Rem Petrov, member of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, noted the need of a state order for the production of the Russian vaccine. A state order has been absent in Russia since 2000, he said. According to the Federal Service for Supervision in the Field of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing, only ten percent of the Russian population is inoculated annually. Flu did over 24 billion roubles of damage to the economy in 2003, said Galina Lazikova, deputy head of the service's epidemiological supervision board. In the common opinion of the conferees, the antiflu vaccine must be included in the national inoculation calendar. For that, amendments have to made in the federal law on the immunoprophylaxis of infectious diseases
