Online PR News – 27-February-2012 – In January of 2012, Advanced BioNutrition Corp. and Centrovet signed a third agreement, promising continuing collaboration in the field of oral vaccination for use against major diseases affecting salmon and trout, including Atlantic salmon.
Previously, Advanced BioNutrition Corporation, an American company that leads the way in providing science-based solutions to improve health and nutrition, and Centrovet , the company's South American strategic partner, developed a vaccine that can be administered orally to fish. This vaccine recently received marketing authorization from Servicio Agricola y Ganadero (SAG), Chiles Agricultural and Livestock Service.
Centrovet developed the active ingredients in the vaccine, and utilized Advanced BioNutrition Corps patented technology to capture the active ingredient, acting to stabilize, protect, and efficiently deliver the product to its final target site. The end product is a freeze-dried, powdered, orally available vaccine that can just be combined directly with the feed and provided to the fish to eat. This is one of the first products of its kind, and it has been heralded as one of the most advanced and innovative products of its time. There's never been a vaccine that has been administered in this fashion that has the same high rate of efficacy.
With this new agreement, the companies will work to refine their original discoveries and they will continue to work together on a global commitment to expand the delivery of oral vaccines to aid in the prevention of Infectious Salmon Anemia Virus (ISAV) and other diseases that impact the salmonid species.
