Elanco launches new PWD vaccine

2nd May 2017 / By Alistair Driver

Elanco Animal Health has launched a new vaccine in the UK and Ireland that it describes as a ‘major breakthrough’ in the fight against post-weaning diarrhoea (PWD).

Coliprotec F4/F18, launched on May 1, is the first single dose oral vaccine intended for active immunisation of pigs against F4- and F18-positive strains of enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC), two significant agents of PWD.
