The Rational for Autovaccines in Colibacillosis of Poultry” to “The Rational for Auto Vaccines in Poultry Colibacillosis
Luís Martins, DVM, Ph.D*, Miguel Fontes, DVM
Colibacillosis is a rather important economic problem for poultry production, associated to Avian Pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC) strains, which may cause several extraintestinal pathologies, such as airsacculitis and cellulitis in broiler chickens, and salpingitis and peritonitis in broiler breeders, leading to septicemic mortality. Control of morbidity and mortality in the outbrakes of colibacillosis may be performed with antibiotics and/or by vaccination.
Prior Experience and Knowledge as Correlates of Parental Acceptance of HPV Vaccination
Diane Reynolds*, Ed.D, RN, OCN, CNE
Although the advent of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine holds the promise of preventing a major female reproductive cancer and genital warts, it is recognized that several factors may impact vaccine acceptance. Parental knowledge of HPV and its relation to cervical cancer, sources of HPV vaccine information, and prior experience with a sexually transmitted infection (STI) may contribute to attitudes toward this primary prevention effort.
Efficacy of DAPPi2-LR Canine Vaccine against Rabies and Leptospira Induced Clinical Signs, Mortality and Renal Carriage
J. Bouvet, C. Cariou, F. Oberli, A.L. Guiot, P.M. Guigal, Lionel Cupillard*
Efficacy of the Leptospiral and rabies components of EURICAN DAPPi2-LR, a canine combined vaccine, was demonstrated after a primary course of vaccination using one dose of EURICAN® DAPPi2-L followed by one dose of EURICAN® DAPPi2-LR. Challenges for leptospirosis (serovars Canicola and Icterohaemorrhagiae) were carried out in puppies 14 days after vaccination for the onset of immunity studies (OOI), in adults 13/14 months after vaccination for the duration of immunity studies (DOI), and for rabies in adults 13 months after vaccination.
