18. Vaccination against avian coccidiosis and necrotic enteritis


Did you know that a vaccine against avian coccidiosis that is attenuated for precociousness can also help to protect the birds against necrotic enteritis?

A very widespread opinion when talking about the two main intestinal diseases that affect poultry is that the use of a vaccine for protection against avian coccidiosis can have the effect of promoting or triggering necrotic enteritis.

HIPRA has demonstrated in a recent study that, when a vaccine against coccidiosis that is attenuated for precociousness is used, the effect is just the opposite and vaccination against Eimeria alone succeeded in reducing the adverse effects of necrotic enteritis (Clostridium perfringens challenge).
