IBD: 60 weeks,
MD: entire risk period.
Contraindications
None.
Special warnings for each target species
Vaccinate healthy animals only.
Special precautions for use
As a live vaccine, the vaccine strain is excreted from vaccinated birds and may spread to turkeys. Safety trials have shown that the strain is safe for turkeys. However, precautionary measures have to be followed in order to avoid direct or indirect contact between vaccinated chickens and turkeys.
Operator warnings
The handling of liquid nitrogen should take place in a well-ventilated area.
Innovax-ND-IBD is a virus suspension packed in glass ampoules and stored in liquid nitrogen. Before withdrawing ampoules from the liquid nitrogen canister, protective equipment consisting of gloves, long sleeves and a facemask or goggles should be worn. In order to prevent serious wounds, by either the liquid nitrogen or the ampoules when removing an ampoule from the canister, hold the palm of the (gloved) hand holding the ampoule away from the body and face. Care should be exercised to prevent contaminating the hands, eyes and clothing with the ampoule content. CAUTION: The ampoules have been known to explode on exposure to sudden temperature changes. Do not thaw in hot water or ice-cold water. Thaw the ampoules in clean water at 25–27 °C.
Adverse Reactions
None known.
Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay
The safety of the veterinary medicinal product has not been established during lay.
Interactions
Safety and efficacy data are available which demonstrate that Innovax-ND-IBD can be mixed in the same solvent and administered by the subcutaneous route with Nobilis Rismavac. For this mixed use, an onset of immunity of 5 days has been demonstrated for MD.
Safety and efficacy data are available which demonstrate that Nobilis ND Clone 30 or Nobilis ND C2 can be administered to day-old chicks that are vaccinated either by the subcutaneous or in ovo route with Innovax-ND-IBD. For such associated use, an onset of immunity of 3 weeks (when used with Nobilis ND Clone 30) and 2 weeks (when used with Nobilis ND C2), has been demonstrated for ND.
Safety and efficacy data are available which demonstrate that Nobilis IB Ma5 or Nobilis IB 4-91 can be administered to day-old chicks that are vaccinated either by the subcutaneous or in ovo route with the vaccine.
No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product except the products mentioned above. A decision to use this vaccine before or after any other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be made on a case by case basis.
Amounts to be administered and administration route
Subcutaneous use: one single injection of 0.2 ml per chick.
In ovo use: one single injection of 0.05 ml per chicken egg.
Preparation of the vaccine:
The usual aseptic precautions should be applied to all preparation and administration procedures. The handling of liquid nitrogen should take place in a well-ventilated area.
1. Use solvent for cell associated poultry vaccines for reconstitution.
For subcutaneous use reconstitute the vaccine according to the table below:
Solvent bag
Number of vaccine ampoules for subcutaneous use
Bag of 400 ml solvent
1 ampoule containing 2000 doses
Bag of 800 ml solvent
2 ampoules containing 2000 doses
Bag of 800 ml solvent
1 ampoule containing 4000 doses
Bag of 1200 ml solvent
3 ampoules containing 2000 doses
Bag of 1600 ml solvent
4 ampoules containing 2000 doses
Bag of 1600 ml solvent
2 ampoules containing 4000 doses
When this product is mixed with Nobilis Rismavac, both should be diluted in the same solvent bag in the same way (400 ml of solvent for each 2,000 doses of both products or 800 ml of solvent for each 4,000 doses of both products).
For in ovo use reconstitute the vaccine according to the table below:
Solvent bag
Number of vaccine ampoules for in ovo use
Bag of 400ml solvent
4 ampoules containing 2000 doses
Bag of 400ml solvent
2 ampoules containing 4000 doses
Bag of 800ml solvent
8 ampoules containing 2000 doses
Bag of 800ml solvent
4 ampoules containing 4000 doses
Bag of 1200 ml solvent
12 ampoules containing 2000 doses
Bag of 1200 ml solvent
6 ampoules containing 4000 doses
Bag of 1600 ml solvent
16 ampoules containing 2000 doses
Bag of 1600 ml solvent
8 ampoules containing 4000 doses
The solvent must be clear, red coloured, without sediment and at room temperature (15–25 °C) at the time of mixing.
2. Preparation of the vaccine shall be planned before the ampoules are taken from the liquid nitrogen and the exact amount of vaccine ampoules and amount of solvent needed shall be calculated first. There is no information available on the number of doses on the ampoules once they are removed from the cane, so special care has to be taken to ensure that the mix-ups of ampoules with different number of doses is avoided and the correct solvent is used.
3. Before withdrawing the ampoules from the liquid nitrogen container, protect the hands with gloves, wear long sleeves and use a facemask or goggles. When removing an ampoule from the cane, hold in the palm of a gloved hand away from the body and the face.
4. When withdrawing a cane of ampoules from the canister in the liquid nitrogen container, expose only the ampoule(s) to be used immediately. It is recommended to handle a maximum of 5 ampoules (from one cane only) at a time. After removing the ampoule(s), the remaining ampoules should be put back immediately into the canister in the liquid nitrogen container.
5. Thaw the content of the ampoule(s) rapidly by immersing the ampoule in clean water at 25–27 °C. Gently swirl the ampoule(s) to disperse the contents. In order to protect the cells, it is important that the ampoule content is mixed, immediately after thawing, with the solvent.
Dry the ampoule, then break the ampoule at its neck and immediately proceed as described below.
6. Gently withdraw the contents of the ampoule into a sterile syringe fitted with an 18 gauge needle.
7. 1 Insert the needle through the stopper of the solvent bag, and then slowly and gently add the contents of the syringe to the solvent. Gently swirl and invert the bag to mix the vaccine. Withdraw a small quantity from the solvent bag into the syringe and rinse the ampoule. Inject the remaining contents of the ampoule gently into the solvent bag.
7.2 Repeat steps 6 and 7 for additional ampoules, if required.
7.3 Remove the syringe and invert the bag (6–8 times) to mix the vaccine.
7.4 The vaccine is now ready for use.
After adding the contents of the ampoule to the solvent, the ready to use product is a clear, red coloured suspension for injection.
Posology:
Subcutaneous: One single injection of 0.2ml per chick.
In ovo: One single injection of 0.05ml per chicken egg.
Administration:
The vaccine is administered by subcutaneous injection in the neck or by in ovo injection. The bag of vaccine should be gently swirled frequently during vaccination to guarantee that the vaccine suspension remains homogenous and that the correct vaccine virus titre is administered (e.g. during long vaccination sessions).
Control of correct storage:
To allow a check on correct storage and transport the ampoules are placed upside down in the liquid nitrogen containers. If frozen content is situated in the tip of the ampoule this indicates that the content has been thawed and must not be used.
Overdose
No symptoms were observed after the administration of a 10-fold dose of vaccine when applied subcutaneously. A 3-fold overdose was tested in ovo, which was regarded as safe. No information is available on the safety or possible adverse reactions following a 10-fold overdose applied in ovo.
Withdrawal periods
Zero days.
