In July 4th , 2017, official website of CFDA issued the Lot Release Annual Report of Biological Products in 2016, which was compiled by National Institutes for Food and Drug Control. This report was the most authoritative source of data to comprehend the market demand and supply of domestic vaccines and plasma products.
In 2016, release 3949 batches of vaccines and approximately 646 million doses; 4025 batches of plasma products and approximately 59.278 million vials; 836 batches of blood screening reagent and about 878 million doses. At present, the lot released vaccines and blood screening reagents are mainly made in China, while the imported products are less than 5 %. As for the plasma products, due to the lack of raw plasma, clinical supply of Human Albumin has more than 50 % insufficiency, relying on the supplementation of imported Human Albumin. The production standardization of lot released products is great, and the quality is stable and controllable. There are few unqualified products in recent years, and only 1 batch of domestic vaccines and 2 batches of imported Human Albumin fail to meet the requirements in 2016.
Human Coagulation Factor VIII is used for the treatment of hemophilia. The CFDA pays high attention to this product due to the shortage in domestic market.
