INFLUENZA VACCINES DEVELOPMENT OF KEY HIGH YIELD SEED VIRUSES
Key lab which provided hyrs for the swine flu vaccine manufacture in 2009, NYMCs X-179A and X-181. Used worldwide for preparation of 400-500 million doses annually to present. Since 2007—two – three NYMC hyrs are used in the annual flu vaccine by nearly all flu mfgers world wide. Our laboratory is the only site capable of developing high growth type B reassortants All of our NYMC seed viruses available for use in the influenza vaccines are posted at the WHO website. All available candidate vaccine viruses from NYMC and reagents are listed at: http://www.who.int/influenza/vaccines/virus/en/
