    Yes, it is true that China Food and Drug Administration approved new vaccine to treat Poliomyelitis on January 15, 2015. The vaccine S-IPV is known as Ai Bi Wei in China. It is manufactured by the Institute of Medical Biology of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences located in Kunming, southwest China's Yunnan province. The World Health Organization is also considering the use of this new vaccine in its global polio treatment program. Poliomyelitis is a highly contagious disease caused by the poliovirus, which attacks the nervous system and can cause lifelong paralysis or even death.
