Is there a vaccine for porcine circovirus?

Is there a vaccine for porcine circovirus?

Ingelvac CircoFLEX® was the first in the FLEX Family of swine vaccines and one of the most revolutionary PCV2 vaccines on the market. As a result, it has built a reputation for providing safe, effective control of porcine circovirus associated disease (PCVAD) in pigs three weeks of age or older from a single dose.

What is the Flex vaccine?

FLEX CircoPRRS ® protects pigs from Porcine Circovirus Type 2 (PCV2) and the virus that causes Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS). The viruses can hinder performance, impair the immune system, and make pigs more susceptible to other diseases.

What is Ingelvac?

Ingelvac CircoFLEX is a vaccine used to protect pigs from the two weeks of age against porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2). PCV2 infections can produce clinical signs such as weight loss or failure to grow, enlarged lymph nodes, difficulty breathing, pale skin and jaundice (yellowing of the skin).

Why is porcine circovirus in rotavirus vaccine?

The contamination was discovered by researchers developing a new technique for detecting viral material. GlaxoSmithKline confirmed that the pig virus, porcine circovirus type 1 or PCV-1, has been in the vaccine since it was developed. This means that pig virus DNA was in the vaccine throughout clinical trials.

What does porcine circovirus do?

Pigs affected may experience increased mortality, poor growth, and weight loss, progressing to the level of severe thinning, and weakness between 5 to 14 weeks of age. Also pigs can develop enlarged lymph nodes, skin rashes, difficulty breathing, jaundice, fever, stomach ulcers, diarrhea, or sudden death may occur.

When do you vaccinate for PRRS?

Fostera PRRS is licensed for the vaccination of healthy, susceptible swine 1 day of age or older in PRRS virus-positive herds as an aid in preventing respiratory disease caused by PRRS virus. A 26-week duration of immunity has been demon- strated against respiratory disease.

Can humans get circovirus?

We have no good evidence that porcine or avian circoviruses can infect humans. In the United States, porcine circovirus sequences can be detected in human feces. These most likely originate from consumption of pork products, most of which also contain porcine circoviruses.

How effective is the PRRS vaccine?

The most common PRRS vaccines can be broadly categorised into modified-live virus (MLV) vaccines or inactivated or killed virus (KV) vaccines. However, so far none of them has been fully effective in preventing the spread of the virus within a herd [8, 21, 22, 26, 31, 32].

What causes porcine circovirus?

How is it transmitted? Exposing pigs to other pigs or boots, clothing, or equipment that has been around other pigs greatly increases the risk for disease transmission. Visible bodily secretions (blood, urine, feces, or mucus) from pigs can contain infectious disease organisms.

How is porcine circovirus transmitted?

Porcine circovirus 2 strains are widespread in most pig populations, and it is clear that infections are often subclinical or very mild. Transmission occurs through direct contact and fomite transmission, with virus being shed in the feces, respiratory secretions, and urine.

What is ingelvac CircoFLEX?


What equipment should be used when mixing CircoFLEX and ingelvac mycoflex?

When mixed with Ingelvac MycoFLEX the following equipment should be used: • Use the same volumes of Ingelvac CircoFLEX and Ingelvac MycoFLEX. • Use a pre-sterilised transfer needle.

What are the ingredients in ingelvac CircoFLEX for pigs?

How long does CircoFLEX last in pigs?

Single-dose, 1 mL vaccine approved for pigs 3 weeks of age or older. Ingelvac CircoFLEX ® provides at least 4 months of immunity, long enough to last through the critical grow-finish stage. Unlike two-dose products, it provides effective immune response within 2 weeks after single dose vaccination.
