Porcilis PCV is a PCV2 ORF2 subunit vaccine that is administered to pigs from 21 days of age to control wasting disease and the porcine circovirus associated diseases.
Opalescent white emulsion for injection, with brown resuspendable sediment
Per 2 ml dose:
Porcine circovirus type 2 ORF2 subunit antigen: at least 4.5 log2 ELISA units*
* Antibody titre obtained according to the in vivo potency test in chickens.
Indications for use
For the active immunisation of pigs to reduce the virus load in blood and lymphoid tissues and to reduce mortality and weight loss associated with porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) infection occurring during the fattening period.
Onset of immunity: 2 weeks
Duration of immunity: 22 weeks.
Administer one dose of 2 ml by intramuscular injection in the neck, in the area behind the ear, according to the following schedule:
In the case of low to medium levels of maternally derived antibodies against PCV2 a single vaccination (2 ml) to pigs from an age of 3 weeks onwards is advised.
When it is expected that higher levels of maternally derived antibodies against PCV2 are present, the following schedule of two vaccinations is advised: the first injection (2 ml) can be given from an age of 3-5 days, the second injection (2 ml) 2-3 weeks later.
High levels of MDA may be expected when sows / gilts are vaccinated against PCV2 virus or when sows / gilts have recently been exposed to high levels of PCV2 virus. In such cases it is advised to perform PCV2 serology, using suitable diagnostics, to select the most appropriate vaccination schedule. In case of doubt, apply the two shot vaccination schedule.
