In India more than 50 per cent of stocked vaccines are wasted due to heat exposure. For this reason, the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) has now planned to develop thermostable vaccines which would give stability to vaccines under varying temperatures. The thermostable vaccines could be the ideal way of reducing the wastages for a country like India where the distribution of vaccines doesn’t happen immediately.
Dr G.N. Singh, Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) said, “We are in the process of examining a proposal that the storage of vaccines can be done without the help of cold chain. The proposal was made by Hilleman Laboratories, a global vaccine research and development organization.” In 2014, research and development of thermostable formulations of oral rotavirus vaccine were initiated. “If the research comes out positively, India will implement the technology which will offer longer term stability of vaccines even in different temperature conditions.” he added.
