Vibrin ® is for vaccination of healthy cows and heifers as an aid in preventing campylobacteriosis (vibriosis) caused by Campylobacter fetus. Vibrin is prepared from an inactivated, concentrated suspension of Campylobacter fetus, bovine isolate, in a patented repository base.
- Helps protect against campylobacteriosis (vibriosis), a common but difficult-to-detect reproductive disease of cattle.
- A single dose is effective.
- May be given as early as seven months before breeding, making it ideal for use at fall pregnancy check.
- Single subcutaneous (SC) dose is 2mL, given to all breeding cows and heifers between 30 days and seven months before breeding.
Safety and Efficacy
Chemical inactivation renders Vibrin incapable of causing or spreading infectious disease. The special adjuvant base enhances and prolongs antigenic stimulation and may produce a localized vaccine granuloma. These are noninflammatory, however, and usually disappear in several weeks. Field use and extensive, controlled tests in breeding cattle under experimental conditions demonstrated that the serotype of Campylobacter fetus used in Vibrin was effective in prevention of campylobacteriosis.
Pregnancy rates in vaccinated heifers were up to 44% higher than in nonvaccinated control heifers. All research conducted on Vibrin indicated a single dose is effective and there is no advantage in using multiple injections.
