Local Vaccine Approved

SHANGHAI Institute of Biological Products was advised yesterday by the National Institute for the Control of Pharmaceutical and Biological Products in Beijing that its H1N1 vaccine had passed tests.

"We will now send our vaccine for evaluation by a panel of experts for a production license," said Shao Jun from the Shanghai institute. "The conference could happen next week." If approved, the Shanghai manufacturer will be the country's third licenced to mass produce swine flu vaccine.

Shanghai Health Bureau didn't update the condition yesterday of a victim with a serious case of swine flu after reporting the city's first critical case on Friday.
