FDA to review GSK's rotavirus vaccine

The feds have agreed to consider allowing GlaxoSmithKline to sell its rotavirus vaccine, Rotarix, in the U.S. Already licensed in nearly 100 countries, Rotarix is designed to protect children from the virus, which can cause severe diarrhea and dehydration. It would compete against RotaTeq, Merck's product, which is already approved for sale. Several medical societies and the U.S. government recommend that all infants receive rotavirus vaccinations.
