The present Competitive Intelligence Report about Dengue Virus Vaccines & Therapeutics provides a competitor evaluation in the field of investigational vaccines and therapeutics against one or more serotypes of Dengue Virus for prophylaxis or treatment of Dengue fever as of July 2012. Purchase of the downloadable pdf report includes a 6-month online access to the data of the report and any updates since the publication date. Credentials to access the database will be sent by e-mail and allow online work with the project data to print or export an individual report.
It is estimated that about 100 million cases of infection by Dengue virus occur each year and that nearly half the world’s population is at risk of Dengue virus infection. At present, no vaccines are available to prevent infection with mosquito-borne Dengue virus. There are four serotypes of Dengue virus, and neutralizing antibodies are serotype-specific with the risk of sequential infections. Although immunity against a specific serotype is life-long, but previous infection with one serotype is a risk factor for a more severe form of Dengue (Dengue hemorrhagic fever) upon subsequent infection with another serotype, thus emphasizing the need for a tetravalent vaccine against all four serotpyes of Dengue virus.
The report includes a compilation of currently active projects in research and development of vaccines targeting Dengue virus for prophylaxis of Dengue fever and of therapeutics for treatment of Dengue fever. In addition, the report lists company-specific R&D pipelines of Dengue Virus Vaccines & Therapeutics. Competitor projects are listed in a tabular format providing information on:
Target / Mechanism of Action,
Class of Compound,
R&D Stage and
additional comments with a hyperlink leading to the source of information.
