Further information
Pharmacotherapeutic group: immunologicals for Suidae, live bacterial vaccines for pigs, Lawsonia
ATCvet code: QI09AE04
The vaccine is designed to stimulate the development of an active immune response to Lawsonia intracellularis in pigs. Seroconversion following vaccination cannot usually be detected, and is not related to protection.
The vaccine modulates the composition of the microbiome. Published literature suggests that this can reduce the Salmonella spp. prevalence in the acute phase of the infection and the seroprevalence at slaughter in L. intracellularis and Salmonella enterica co-infected pigs.
