[Editorial] What next for the malaria RTS,S vaccine candidate?

On Oct 23, the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE) and the Malaria Policy Advisory Committee (MPAC) announced their much-anticipated recommendations for the world’s first malaria vaccine candidate known as RTS,S/AS01. Their decision is not to recommend widespread deployment of the vaccine based on existing evidence, but instead to assess the feasibility of delivering the vaccine and its impact in real-world settings. This decision was perhaps unexpected given the fact that earlier this year the European Medicines Agency reviewed the same safety and efficacy data, and approved the vaccine’s use in young children.
