INACTIVATED ND

Newcastle Disease Vaccine, Inactivated, LaSota strain

For Breeder & Chicken hens

Indications
This vaccine has been developed for use in chickens and breeder hens to give broad protection against Newcastle Disease. When injected, the vaccine produces a high level of circulating antibody (humoral immunity), which is maintained throughout the production cycle. It provides high levels of parental immunity in the progeny. This is the only way to provide protection to the chick during the critical first few days of life. Early infection with Newcastle Disease causes high mortality.

Description
Is produced with a high tittering strain of Newcastle disease virus, suspended in a stable oil emulsion. A large amount of antigen is provided in a ½ ml dose. When injected, the oil emulsion controls the absorption of the virus and greatly enhances the development of high levels of immunity. The product meets rigid 'Quality Control' standards of Purity, Safety and Potency as per individual monographs of viral vaccines of B.P. (Vet).

Composition
Each dose contains not less than a pre-inactivation titer of 1 x 108.5 EID50 of Newcastle disease virus.

Advantages
It is completely safe because it contains no living virus. It can safely be administered at any age. It cannot 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. Newcastle Disease immunity is delivered to the farm with the chicks.

Dosage & Administration
Birds should be "primed" with live virus Newcastle Disease vaccine at least 4 weeks prior to the use of this vaccine. Vaccinate with this vaccine at 16 to 20 weeks of age. If birds are held for a second year, revaccinate during molt. Dosage is 0.5 ml (1/2 ml) per bird. Vaccine should be brought to room temperature before use. Inject subcutaneously in the lower neck region using aseptic technique. Inject all birds in flock.

Warning: Do not vaccinate within 42 days before slaughter.

Caution
The capability of this vaccine to produce satisfactory results depends upon many factors, including - but not limited to - conditions of storage and handling by the user, administration of the vaccine, health and responsiveness of individual chickens, and degree of field exposure. Therefore, directions for use should be followed carefully.
