Abstract :

Vaccines have been the most cost effective public health intervention in controlling deadly infectious diseases. With advances in understanding the immune system and mechanisms of many diseases, significant progress has been made in recent years in developing new vaccines against a number of deadly diseases against which vaccines were not available. Development and licensure of vaccines take years and require commitment, patience and persistence by vaccinologists and the vaccine manufacturers. New biological products, including vaccines, developed using innovative methods require in-depth understanding of regulatory compliance and the law for a smooth and fast licensure of the product. Strong science must be complimented with robust development processes, sustainable compliance and quality by design concepts, leading to consistent and validated manufacturing processes. Strategic planning in licensure and flexible and firm corporate policies are necessary to meet compliance requirements for biological products and changing regulations. Understanding regulations and complexity of biological products, and sound planning are necessary for bringing innovative vaccines faster to the market.
