Summary

Issues detailed requirements for the manufacturing and control of selected biologicals. New requirements are provided for Vi polysaccharide typhoid vaccine, and for live combined measles, mumps and rubella vaccines. Revised requirements for the collection, processing and quality control of blood, blood components and plasma derivatives are also presented, with particular attention given to the extreme care needed during manufacture to ensure that these products are free from infectious viruses, including HIV and hepatitis B virus.
