New Delhi, Sep 29 (PTI) India's drug regulator has allowed the export of the first produced-in-India vaccine against malaria, developed by scientists at the University of Oxford and manufactured by Serum Institute to the UK, official sources said on Thursday.

The Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) has granted permission to send two lakh doses of the vaccine.
