Possible Expansion for Otitis Media Drug

Possible Expansion

Otitis media is one of the most common bacterial infections in children. The Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee to the FDA recently voted in favor of expanding the indication of Pneumococcal 7-valent Conjugate Vaccine (Diptheria CRM197 Protein). The drug is sold as Prevnar by Wyeth Vaccines.

The committee believed that there were adequate data to support the efficacy of the vaccine for the prevention of otitis media caused by Streptococcus pneumonia, because there are seven serotypes in the vaccine. This drug can­not prevent all middle ear infections, but it could lead to a reduction in the number of occurences.
