K Vac BD

Infectious Bursal Disease Vaccine

  Inactivated and concentrated oil emulsion vaccine for breeder hens and layers to immunize against infectious bursal disease.

Description

  • K Vac BD is produced with high titering strain of a standard type 1 Infectious Bursal disease (IBD) virus, derived from embryonated chicken's egg, suspended in a stable oil emulsion. A large amount of antigen is provided in a 1/2 ml dose.
  • When injected, the oil emulsion controls the absorption of the virus and greatly enhances the development of high levels of immunity.

Composition

Each dose contains not less than pre-inactivation titer of 106.2 TCID50 of IBD virus.

Indications

  • K Vac BD has been developed for use in breeder hens to give broad protection against Infectious Bursal disease (Gumboro disease) virus. When injected, the vaccine produces a high level of circulating antibody (humoral immunity) which is maintained throughout the production cycle.
  • This provides high levels of parental immunity in the progeny. This is the only way to provide protection to the chicks during the critical first few days of life. Early infection with IBD (Gumboro disease) causes permanent damage to the immune system (immunosuppression) and leaves the flock susceptible to many other diseases.

Advantages

  • K Vac BD is completely safe because it contains no living virus. It can safely be administered at any age.
  • It can not spread from vaccinated to susceptible flocks or be transmitted from dams to progeny. It provides high and persistent levels of antibody in the dams to provide parental immunity to the progeny.
  • IBD immunity is delivered to the farm with the chicks.

Dosage & Use

  • Birds should be “primed” with mild or intermediate strain of live virus IBD vaccine at least 4 weeks prior to the use of this vaccine.
  • Vaccinate with K Vac BD at 16 to 20 weeks of age. If birds are held for a second year, revaccinate during molt.
  • Dosage is 1/2 ml (0.5 ml) per bird.
  • Vaccine should be brought to room temperature (+18°C to +20°C) before use.
  • Inject subcutaneously in the lower neck region or intramuscularly in to the chest muscle or leg using aseptic technique. inject all birds in flock.
