Live Immune Complex vaccine indicated for the active immunization of chickens against Infectious Bursal Disease after injection in one-day-old chicks.
This new technology combining antigen + antibody temporarily protects the virus from the neutralization by maternal antibodies, modulating the process of vaccinal replication to the right time.
TRANSMUNE® IBD vaccine contains the Winterfield 2512 strain of Infectious Bursal Disease live virus in complex with IBD immunoglobulins (VPI : Virus Protecting Immunoglobulins) in freeze-dried form. The embryonated hen eggs and chickens used in the production of the vaccine are obtained from specified-pathogen-free (SPF) flocks.
For the active immunisation of healthy 18-day-old chicken embryos or healthy day-old chicks against classical or very virulent Infectious Bursal Disease (Gumboro Disease). There is no need to revaccinate in the farm against Gumboro Disease. There is no need for determination of MDA level prior to vaccination; the delivery vehicle is timing the vaccine virus release individually, according to the maternally-derived antibody level of the chicks. One full dose is guaranteed to be administered to each chick. There is no risk linked to water administration of usual IBD vaccines.

The embryos should be injected at 18 days of age; a convenient time is when the egg is transferred from the setting to the hatching trays. Prior to injection, check that the position of the egg is correct (long axis vertical, with the air cell pointing up). Only use automatic injection devices that are designed specifically for in ovo injection. After injection, the eggs should be transferred to the hatching trays without delay so as to avoid harming the embryos due to chilling.
This injection should be performed appropriately under the skin of the neck of the bird using an automatic or manual injection device.
