AVIVAX-L TM

Live Attenuated New Castle Disease Virus Vaccine

COMPOSITION

AVIVAX-LTM is a freeze-dried live attenuated New Castle disease viral vaccine prepared from the La Sota strain of the virus. The diluent is used to re-hydrate the freeze-dried component.

PROPERTIES

New Castle disease is caused by specified viruses of the avian paramyxovirus type 1(APMV-1) serotype of the genus Rubulavirus belonging to the family Paramyxoviridae. There are nine types of avian paramyxoviruses designated APMV-1 to APMV-9. New castle disease virus has been designated APMV-1. Since its recognition in 1926 the disease has been regarded as being endemic in many countries. Prophylactic vaccination is practised in all but a few of the countries that produce poultry on a commercial scale.

AVIVAX-L TM is a lentogenic vaccine prepared from the La Sota strain after subjection to selection and cloning. Being a live vaccine AVIVAX-L TM induces a stronger immune response against New castle disease compared to the inactivated vaccines.

INDICATIONS

For the active immunization of healthy poultry against New castle disease.
