Comvax (Prophylactic Hepatitis B Virus Vaccines) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022


Hepatitis B, which is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV), is characterized by acute or chronic inflammation of the liver. Researchers and healthcare experts have estimated that roughly two billion people are infected with HBV worldwide, with roughly 600,000 people dying each year from HBV-related liver diseases. While the arrival of recombinant HBsAg vaccines has greatly reduced disease burden over the past two decades, questions surrounding vaccine uptake and effectiveness in adults, particularly in niche patient populations, still remain. GlobalData expects that the growing popularity of pediatric combination vaccines, along with the arrival of vaccines that achieve higher seroconversion rates in high-risk adults, will serve to stimulate growth in the marketplace over the forecast period. Country-specific immunization recommendations and policy implementation will be an essential metric for determining future vaccine uptake in the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan) and Canada.

Comvax [Haemophilus b Conjugate (Meningococcal Protein Conjugate) and Hepatitis B (Recombinant) Vaccine] is Merck’s bivalent combination vaccine that offers protection against infections caused by Hib and all known subtypes of HBV. Comvax contains the antigenic components used in Merck’s PedvaxHIB and Recombivax HB vaccines. Upon receiving FDA approval for use in infants six weeks to 15 months of age in 1996, Comvax became the first combination vaccine in the US to protect its recipients against HBV infection. Currently, Comvax is only marketed in the US, as its EU market authorization, under the name Procomvax, was not renewed in 2009.
