Healive® - Inactivated Hepatitis A Vaccine
Healive is the first inactivated hepatitis A vaccine developed in China by Chinese scientists who retained the intellectual property rights. It brought to an end an era in which China did not have its own technology for developing and producing inactivated Hepatitis A vaccine. Healive received the new drug certificate from the China State and Food Drug Administration in 1999, obtained final regulatory approval for production in May 2002 and was launched that same year.
Healive is a purified inactivated Hepatitis A vaccine without any preservatives.
Healive has a long shelf life of at least 2.5 years when the recommended cold chain storage is maintained at 2-8 degrees Celsius and of 32 days when the cold chain storage is not maintained. All tests were conducted in full compliance with quality specifications.
