Newcastle Disease, Avian Infectious Bronchitis & Egg Drop Syndrome ’76 (Adenovirus) Vaccine, Inactivated, LaSota & Massachusetts & Adenovirus 76 Type strains

For Breeder Hens

This vaccine has been developed for use in breeder hens and replacement pullets to give broad protection against Newcastle disease, Infectious Bronchitis (Mass. types) and Egg Drop Syndrome. 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.

It is produced with a high tittering strain of Newcastle disease virus and the Massachusetts strain of IB virus and AV 76 virus. This is the most serious and common Bronchitis strain that infect chicken flocks. By using virus concentration, large amounts of all antigens are 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. The product meets rigid 'Quality Control' standards of Purity, Safety and Potency as per individual monographs of viral vaccines of B.P. (Vet).

Each dose contains Not Less Than a pre inactivation titer of 1 X 109.0 EID50 ND strain and 1 X 106.9 EID50 Mass. Type Strain (Dg Strain) and 2000 hemagglutinating units of inactivated adenovirus.

It provides a broader range of Bronchitis protection than other commercial vaccines. This killed virus vaccine in oil emulsion provides more consistent high titers throughout the production period than the live virus vaccines. The IB and ND viruses are contagious and can recycle within the flock. This can cause loss of egg production without symptoms. This vaccine protects the reproductive system against homologous strains and prevents such egg losses. It can be safely administered at any age as it has no living virus. It cannot spread from vaccinated to susceptible flocks or be transmitted from the dams to the progeny. It provides high and persistent levels of antibody in the dams to provide parental immunity to the progeny. Immunity is delivered to the farm with the chicks.

Dosage & Administration
Birds should be "primed" with live virus Newcastle-Bronchitis vaccine at 10 to 14 days and at 12 weeks of age. Vaccinate between 16 and 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 before use. Inject subcutaneously in the lower neck region using aseptic technique. Inject all birds in the flock.

Warning: Do not vaccinate within 42 days before slaughter.

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.

  • Do not use chemical disinfectants for sterilization
  • Remove the vaccine from refrigerator at least 1 day before vaccination for better results
  • Shake well before and during use
  • Vaccinate only healthy birds
  • Use entire contents of bottle when first opened
  • For veterinary use only
