Conjugate vaccine is a combination of a weak antigen with a strong antigen so to provide active immunization against immune system having a stronger response to the weak antigen. In a conjugate vaccine, the weak antigen is covalently attached to a strong antigen and triggers stronger immunological response to the weak antigen. The weak antigen is a polysaccharide that is attached to strong protein antigen.
Conjugate vaccines target several leading causes of vaccine-preventable deaths. Advantages of conjugate vaccines include their ability to elicit immunological memory and to reduce asymptomatic carriage of the bacteria, resulting in marked herd immunity. These vaccines offer immunization from different bacterial strains. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) April 2019 data, pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (called PCV13) protects against 13 types of pneumococcal bacteria.
Increasing cases of infectious diseases such as typhoid, pneumonia, and others is expected to drive the global conjugate vaccine growth. For instance, according to a study published in Science Direct Journal in 2017, 11.9 - 26.9 million cases of typhoid fever occur each year in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) Moreover, as per the WHO 2016 data, around one million children globally die from pneumonia every year and there has been an increasing demand for safe and effective vaccines that could prevent these deaths.
Healthcare facilities are looking forward to expand their facilities with advanced technologies to create innovative and cost-effective solutions to address barriers to universal vaccination, which in turn contributing to the growth of the global conjugate vaccine market. For instance, on April 25, 2016, innovative smart phones with an app has been provided to various healthcare facilities of northern Mozambique, Africa for 1 year, through the combined partnership of GSK and Vodafone, with funding from GAVI Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation) and USAID (United States Agency for International Development) under mVacciNation pilot program.
This app enables healthcare facilities to report regularly on vaccine stock levels and refrigerator temperatures, improving critical supply chain and cold chain management. Furthermore, it helps health workers to register patients, view their vaccination histories, and also allows to send reminders to registered patients for their next vaccination.
However, there are some challenges in global implementation of protein conjugate polysaccharide vaccines which may hamper the growth of conjugate vaccine market. For instance, according to the NCBI 2014 article, challenges in implementation of conjugate vaccines includes replacement by nonvaccine serotypes, capsule switching, time duration of the antibody protective effect following vaccination, cost of the vaccines, program costs, lack of knowledge of the disease burden, and targeting population groups for vaccination.
