Vaccination is key to preventing and controlling Ileitis. Choosing the right vaccine is crucial to achieve optimal vaccination results. For choosing the right vaccine efficacy is the most important feature. As Lawsonia intracellularis, the bacterium causing Ileitis, is an intracellular enteric pathogen an oral live vaccine is the most promising approach for an effective vaccine. In addition, it is safe and convenient.
Oral live vaccination against Ileitis has demonstrated efficacy in more than 500 million pigs
An oral live vaccine is the logical approach for an effective vaccine against Ileitis for two main reasons. Firstly, a live vaccine most closely mimics “natural” infection and induces a solid cellular immune response which is very relevant for intracellular pathogens. Secondly, through oral application it builds local immunity right were it is needed at target tissue level – the intestinal mucosa. Besides cellular immunity, local mucosal immunity is the other relevant pillar helping to prevent Ileitis. The efficacy of oral live vaccination has been proven extensively in the field. More than 500 million pigs have been successfully vaccinated to date.
Oral vaccination via the drinking water is most convenient
Simple oral vaccination is most convenient and as easy as taking a drink. It results in less stress for the animals, for you and your employees. More pigs can be vaccinated in less time and time is gained to take care of your pigs. Furthermore, vaccine administration through the drinking water reduces the need for injections. Less exposure to needles results in improved pork quality and worker safety. Simple oral vaccination is most convenient and as easy as taking a drink.
