The vaccine candidate (RTS,S/AS01) is the first to reach phase 3 clinical testing and is partially effective against clinical disease in young African children up to 4 years after vaccination, according to final trial data published in The Lancet journal.

According to catholic.org, The vaccine, called RTS,S is the first malaria vaccine to reach advanced trials. Tests on 15,500 toddlers and babies in sub-Saharan Africa have been completed. Drug firm GlaxoSmithKline has applied for a license from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the RTS,S vaccine.

According to The Hindu, “Despite the falling efficacy over time, there is still a clear benefit from RTS,S/AS01,” Greenwood said.

“An average 1,363 cases of clinical malaria were prevented over four years of follow-up for every 1,000 children vaccinated, and 1,774 cases in those who also received a booster shot. Over three years of follow-up, an average 558 cases were averted for every 1,000 infants vaccinated, and 983 cases in those also given a booster dose.”

“Given that there were an estimated 198 million malaria cases in 2013, this level of efficacy potentially translates into millions of cases of malaria in children being prevented,” Greenwood said.

The phase-3 randomised trial enrolled 15,459 young infants (aged six to 12 weeks at first vaccination) and children (five to 17 months at first vaccination) from 11 sites across seven sub—Saharan African countries (Burkina Faso, Gabon, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique and United Republic of Tanzania) with varying levels of malaria transmission. Told The Hindu.

According to Delhi Daily News, The vaccine was developed for use in sub-Saharan Africa where malaria kills around 1300 children every day. The phase-3 randomized trial enrolled 15,459 young infants (aged 6 to 12 weeks at first vaccination) and children (5 to 17 months at first vaccination) from eleven sites across seven sub-Saharan African countries (United Republic of Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Gabon, Malawi, Kenya and Mozambique) with varying levels of malaria transmission.
