Safe Salmonella DIVA-vaccine -LICENSED

  • we developed Salmonella Typhimurium strains of which the humoral response elicited in pigs can easily be differentiated from the humoral response, elicited by a wildtype fieldstrain.
  • the use of these markerstrains as a vaccine in pigs would thus not interfere with existing Salmonella control programs in which the classification is based on the serological status of the herd
  • vaccination with the novel strains leads to protection against a challenge with a highly virulent strain
  • the novel strains can thus be used in the existing Salmonella control programs as a control measure
  • moreover, vaccine strains can be developed with reduced recrudescence when pigs are in stress conditions
