Composition

One dose of vaccine contains:

2 ml of the vaccine strain LK-М of Classical Swine Fever virus with titer ≥ 4,0 lg TCID50/ml in the polymer blister;

briquette-bait with alimentary and attractant components;

antibiotic of the tetracycline group (biomarker) not less than 0,150 g/bait.

Pharmaceuticalform

Briquette-bait whith polymer blister with the virus-containing culture fluid.

Immunologicalproperties

When an animal eats bait, it bites through the polymer blister with the virus-containing culture fluid, releasing the virus into the mouth. Through mucous membranes and tonsils, the virus enters the body and stimulates production of protective virus neutralizing antibodies against CSF. The protective effect of the vaccine is only observed in uninfected animals.

Postvaccinal protection in pigs is formed in 10-14 days after vaccination and persists for at least one year.

Targetspecies

Wild and domestic pigs of all age groups.

Indication

Oral immunization of wild and domestic pigs against Classical Swine Fever. For preventive vaccination of domestic pigs against CSF the parenteral vaccination is preferable.

Interactionwithother preparations

Not revealed.

Special precautions (in the period of gestation and lactation)

Vaccine does has no negative impact during the period of pregnancy and lactation.

Routeof administration and dosage Wild pigs

Campaigns of pig vaccination are held twice a year – in spring and autumn. During one campaign distribution of the vaccine in the same area is carried out twice with an interval of 3-4 weeks, in order to cover a greater percentage of pigs’ population, including the young.

Recommended vaccination schemes may be used as each separately or in combination:

  • I vaccination scheme.

Per one place (feeding area) the evaluation of the doses quantity per layout is carried out at the rate of 2-3 baits per pig that visits it.

Parallel to layout of determined quantity of vaccine baits, create at least 3 control points with labels that do not scare away the animals, in different parts of the feeding area (1-2 bait at each point). Control of the vaccine baits consumption at the control points is performed at 7th or 8th day and 14th or 15th day.

  • II vaccination scheme.

In migration area of wild pigs and inaccessible locations the vaccine is distributed using small aircraft. Vaccine baits are distributed every 20-30 m along the migration lines (pathways).

  • III vaccination scheme.

In areas of seasonal concentration of animals is possible to lay out it by parallel flight lines spacing of not less than 200-250 m. You must first determine the territory and the number of animals on it. The vaccine is laid out at a density of

15-30 doses per km2, taking into account an animal inventory. Possible to use more doses depending on the density of the animal population.

  • IV vaccination scheme.

Automotive and manual layouts of vaccine baits are allowed. For example, four persons, passing 1 km at a distance of 250 meters of each other, distribute the vaccine with an interval of 200 meters. Manual layouts are most preferred in suburban areas in combination with the distribution by small aircraft at the earliest opportunity. Schemes of vaccination of wild pigs (the number of doses of vaccine and their distribution) can be adjusted by veterinarian in accordance with the epizootic situation in the region and the density of the animal population.

Domesticpigs

(see item Indication):

Vaccination is carried out twice at an interval of 3-4 weeks. After a 12-hours starvation diet every animal should receive one dose of vaccine. If you have any doubts about the real intake of the briquette-bait with the vaccine, the procedure shall be repeated the next day. In CSF-free farms, adult pigs and replacement gilts starting from three months of age are vaccinated once a year, sows are vaccinated once a year at 45-15 days before insemination.

In the farms where there is a risk of infection, piglets are vaccinated twice: the first time at age of 30-45 days; next time in 3-4 weeks after the first vaccination; hereinafter – once a year.

Withdrawalperiod

0 days.

Self life

24 months at temperature minus 18° С.

Storageconditions
