Meningitis is an infection of meninges, a membrane that covers brain and spinal cord and can cause severe brain damage. Meningococcemia is a life threatening disease characterized by infection of the blood stream while Septicemia is characterized by infections throughout the body. These diseases are very severe and associated with rapid onset of symptoms characterized by fever, headache and stiff neck and may result in death within only a few hours. To cope with these diseases, immediate and effective diagnosis and treatment is required that is not feasible and this has resulted in prevention of meningococcal diseases by vaccines rather than treatment.
The market can be segmented on the basis of types of meningococcal vaccines available such as Quadrivalent (Serogroups A, C, W135 and Y), Bivalent (Serogroups C & Y), Serogroup A, Serogroup B and Serogroup X. Meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine and meningococcal conjugate vaccine are two types of meningococcal quadrivalent vaccines available worldwide against Nisseria meningitides. Meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine is the only vaccine available in the America used for people older than 55 years. Menomune produced by Sanofi Pasteur is a type of meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine.
Meningococcal conjugate vaccines such as Menactra (Sanofi Pasteur) and Menveo (Novartis) are generally preferred for people of 55 years age and younger. Quadrivalent conjugate vaccines account for largest share of the global sales. The introduction of Sero B group vaccine will drive the market in America, as of now no vaccine is available to protect against serogroup B meningococcal disease. According to WHO and other associated sources such as African Meningococcal Carriage Consortium, Africa has been affected by serogroup A meningococcal diseases every 7-14 years for the last 100 years, particularly in African meningitis belt which includes Chad, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali and Nigeria. MenAfriVac, a vaccine effective against Serogroup A is extensively used in the Africa to eliminate meningococcal diseases.
Some of the key players engaged in the development, manufacturing and marketing of meningococcal vaccines are Sanofi Pasteur, Novartis, GlaxoSmithCline, Pfizer and Baxter International Inc.
