100 Word Company Profile
Building upon the legacy of pioneers like Louis Pasteur we want to help protect people against infectious diseases so that they can live longer, feel better and achieve more. We are dedicated exclusively to vaccines because we believe prevention is better than cure and immunisation is the best prevention.
Our 45 vaccines help protect people from 20 infectious diseases, including cervical cancer, liver cancer, tuberculosis, poliomyelitis, rabies, measles, yellow fever, shingles and influenza. Our vaccines help protect everyone – from infancy to old age.
Sanofi Pasteur MSD is a joint venture between sanofi pasteur - the vaccine division of sanofi-aventis - and Merck & Co. Inc.. We develop, license, manufacture and distribute vaccines in Western Europe. We lead the vaccine industry in Western Europe with an estimated 37% of the vaccine market in 2008.
Together with sanofi Pasteur and Merck we are working to make vaccines available to more people in the developing world, in alliance with organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GAVI).
Gen-Probe’s APTIMA® HPV Assay targets mRNA expression of E6/E7 genes that are known to contribute to cancer progression.
Studies show that the APTIMA HPV Assay provides assurance of high sensitivity for detecting cervical pre-cancers and increased specificity for cervical disease; thus reducing false positive results, avoiding unnecessary medical procedures and unnecessary costs.
Gen-Probe is a global leader in infectious disease testing, blood screening, oncology and transplant diagnostics, providing molecular diagnostic solutions for women's health, including CT/GC, Trichomonas vaginalis and HPV. For more information go to www.gen-probe.com
