Fluarix (Seasonal Influenza Vaccine) Forecast and Market Analysis


GlobalData has released its new PharmaPoint Drug Evaluation report, “Fluarix (Seasonal Influenza Vaccine) Forecast and Market Analysis”. Seasonal Influenza is a respiratory infection caused by influenza virus that results in mild to severe symptoms, such as fever, cold and cough. The market is heavily driven by the sales of prophylactic vaccine treatments to prevent infection. Currently, trivalent intramuscular vaccines such as Sanofi’s Fluzone and Vaxigrip, GlaxoSmithKline’s Fluarix and FluLaval and Novartis’ Fluvirin garner the majority stake of the market. However, with the entrance of vaccines with novel routes of administration, such as AstraZeneca’s intranasal FluMist and Sanofi’s Fluzone IntraDermal, GlobalData projects a dramatic shift favoring the adoption of such vaccines over the traditional intramuscular vaccines. GlobalData also anticipates that manufacturers that launch quadrivalent formulations will steal market share, patient share, and revenue from the trivalent influenza vaccines currently available.

Fluarix is a trivalent, inactivated vaccine designed to immunize recipients against influenza. Fluarix is manufactured by propagating influenza viruses in chicken eggs, purifying the viruses via centrifugation, disrupting the viruses with detergent, inactivating the viruses with formaldehyde and sodium deoxycholate, and suspending the split virus in saline buffer. Fluarix is administered via intramuscular injection, where it elicits the production of antibodies that help protect the recipient against subsequent influenza infection. Fluarix is marketed by GlaxoSmithKline, as is a second trivalent vaccine, FluLaval. Fluarix was initially sold in Europe, but GSK expanded sales to the US and Indian markets.
