Meanwhile, results, published in the Lancet previous year show Tybpar TCV to be 87 percent effective and can also be administered to children over six months old.

This prequalification from World Health Organization is an important step to getting the vaccine made available in low-income countries. Typbar-TCV offers advantages over now available typhoid vaccines, including the ability to provide longer-lasting protection, require fewer doses, and be administered to children younger than two years of age, making it the first-ever to be approved for this age group. The WHO has recommended the use of typhoid conjugate vaccines on infants between 6 and 23 months of age and for children between 2 and 15 years of age. "SAGE also called for the introduction of TCV to be prioritized for countries with the highest burden of typhoid disease or of antibiotic resistance to Salmonella typhi".

Typhoid fever is caused by food and water contaminated by Salmonella Typhi (S Typhi) bacteria. The symptoms of the disease include fever, headache, nausea, loss of appetite, constipation and sometimes diarrhoea. "In some cases, patients have a rash of flat, rose-colored spots", according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In most developing countries, the cost of a course of typhoid fever treatment ranges from $50 to $5000 for outpatient and inpatient treatments, the company said. Travelers to Asia, Africa, and Latin America are especially at risk, and the highest risk for typhoid is in South Asia.

Bharat, which makes vaccines against nine other diseases, including one approved by the World Health Organization for polio, is developing immunisations against Ebola, chikungunya, Zika and non-typhoid strains of Salmonella.

People in close contact with a typhoid carrier. About 100 healthy volunteers in Oxford, England - many of them students - received the vaccine or a placebo, and then swallowed live Salmonella typhi.
