UPDATE 3-Glaxo's rotavirus vaccine use suspended - US
By Maggie Fox
WASHINGTON, March 22 (Reuters) - Doctors should temporarily stop using GlaxoSmithKline Plc's (GSK.L) (GSK.N) Rotarix vaccine against a diarrhea-causing virus called rotavirus because it is contaminated with an apparently harmless pig virus, regulators and the company said on Monday.
"No safety issue has been identified by external agencies or GSK. GSK is committed to patient safety and to the highest manufacturing standards for all our vaccines and medicines. We are already working closely and discussing this finding with regulatory agencies around the world," said Thomas Breuer, Glaxo's chief medical officer.
