"Among traditional enteric diseases affecting pigs today, Salmonella is one of the most widespread, resilient organisms and for many producers, may be a common cause of lost production on farms," said Greg Cline, DVM, technical manager for enteric products at BIVI.
"Extensive research has documented the vaccine's effectiveness against both types of Salmonella", Cline said.
"After the 14-day Salmonella Choleraesuis challenge period, clinical signs were significantly reduced in the vaccinated pigs" he said. "Specifically, there was no dehydration, mortality, abnormal body condition or fever. No clinical signs or adverse events from the vaccine were reported."
Results of the Salmonella Typhimurium study also are encouraging.
"Vaccinated pigs had a significant reduction in clinical disease," Cline said.
"Immunization, along with the implementation of proper sanitation programs, biosecurity protocols and diagnostic tools, can reduce the impact of salmonellosis in your swine herd, improve the safety of the pork you provide and increase farm profitability," Cline adds.

The first initiative, according to Greg Cline, DVM, technical manager of swine enteric disease at BIVI, is a PED applied research commitment of up to $50,000 in research funds supporting the development of knowledge and tools targeting the practical management of PED.
"We will be focused on helping the industry to find answers to some of the most critical questions regarding PED," noted Cline in an interview. "From our long research history with PRRS, Lawsonia intracellularis, PCV2 and other diseases, we continue our commitment to finding solutions through applicable research targeted toward the tough problems that plague the swine industry."
The second initiative is the "PED News" service that BIVI is sponsoring in partnership with the University of Californi, Davis' Center of Animal Disease Modeling and Surveillance (CADMS) department. Cline said the program is similar to CADMS' "FMD News" service where subscribers can receive news clips daily or weekly from around the world that highlights all the news and research related to PED.
"We saw a need for this type of information-sharing service to help the North American swine industry stay as current as possible with the all the PED-related information," said Cline who noted that the disease was first identified in the U.S. in April of 2013 and to date, there is no vaccine or antibiotic available to fight the disease. He said that these two initiatives were designed to help discover, coordinate and share information related to PED that may be useful in helping vets and producers better prevent, manage and control this disease.
"Because this highly contagious disease is relatively new to the U.S. and its impact on producers can be so devastating, it's critical that everyone work together to find effective solutions and share information," Cline said. "These two initiatives should help us to better understand this highly contagious disease and how to more effectively manage PED."

"Oral vaccines pamper people and they also pamper pigs," Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica (BIVI) Technical Manager Dr. Greg Cline said during an event at World Pork Expo last week. "It certainly is a lot easier to vaccinate a group of pigs through the water supply system than it is to go through and restrain the pigs and inject them."
wpx13-bivi-blueprint Dr. Cline explained how producers can administer several vaccines at the same time by water. "We have a license for the concurrent use of Enterisol Ileitis, Enterisol SC-54 and Ingelvac ERY-ALC," he said. "So we've got an opportunity to have both ease of administration and add those vaccines together and get multiple pathogens at the same time."
BI offers an oral vaccination learning program and producers can find out more through their local veterinarian or BIVI representative.
