Recombitek Equine West Nile Vaccine, 10 x 1 ml tray SKU: 060MER01-1 [printable] Recombitek Equine West Nile Virus Vaccine Merial RECOMBITEK Equine WNV Vaccine stimulates an excellent anamnestic response (or "Booster") in horses previously vaccinated with 2 doses of the West Nile - INNOVATOR vaccine. A head-to-head trial study of 27 horses ranging in age and breed while maintained on pasture, that had previously received 2 doses of West Nile - INNOVATOR as per their label. These horses were split into 2 groups, one group which was given RECOMBITEK as a booster vaccination and the other groups which was given West Nile - INNOVATOR as a booster vaccination. RECOMBITEK Equine WNV Vaccine stimulated an immune "Boost" response signifcantly higher than that produced by a booster vaccination of West Nile - INNOVATOR. Description: Recombitek Equine West Nile Virus vaccine contains lyophilized recombinant canarypox vectored WNV vaccine, plus a sterile liquid diluent. A canarypox vector has been modified using recombinant technology to express the desired antigens capable of stimulating a protective response to WNV. After inoculation, the vector does not multiply in the horse, but does express the protective proteins, including an immuna status against WNV. Safety and immunogenicity of this vaccine have been demonstrated by vaccination and natural challenge (bites of Aedes albopictus mosquitoes known to be infected with WNV) of susceptible horses. Indications: Recombitek Equine WNV vaccine is recommended for the vaccination of healthy horses as an aid in the prevention of viremia due to West Nile Virus infection. Product Advantages: Recombinant vaccine technology carries only the WNV genetic material responsible for stimulating protective immune response. This is inserted into a canarypox vector which is not pathogenic to the horse. This technology delivers the WNV genetic material to the host cell, mimicking natural infection. Research with Recombitek Equine WNV vaccine demonstrates that this technology takes advantage of the horse%s entire immune system (cellular and humoral) for fast onset of immunity. Year-long protection against WNV infection. When used according to the label. Recombitek Equine WNV vaccine stimulates a protective immune response throughout the period when horses are at risk of infection. Annual revaccination with a single dose is recommended. Safety and immunogenicity proven by a natural, not an artificial, challenge. To ensure rigorous and realistic challenge, vaccinates and controls were exposed to live mosquitoes that were infected with WNV. Provides active immunity in naive horses. Horse Products>Vaccines
