FDA OKs US cell-based flu vaccine facility as govt prepares for pandemic --The facility had already received a separate 'pandemic ready' certification. 16 Jun 2014 The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the first US facility that can make cell-culture influenza vaccines, a Novartis plant in Holly Springs, N.C., that has been part of federal government efforts to prepare for a their pandemic and to sidestep some limits of egg-based flu vaccine technology. Novartis said in a press release today that the approval clears the way for commercial production to begin at the site and for Flucelvax, its seasonal flu vaccine, to be made in the United States for the first time. The vaccine, approved in November 2012, was the first cell-based flu vaccine to receive FDA clearance. Flucelvax, an inactivated trivalent vaccine approved for use in adults, contains flu viruses grown in mammalian cell cultures. [Now that hundreds of millions of dollars have been invested on these deadly vaccines, do you actually think the(ir) pandemic isn't far behind?]
