Gudair is the only existing vaccine worldwide for the immunization of Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis in sheep and goats
Ramón A. Juste, DVM, PhD, president of the International Association for Paratuberculosis, talks about the benefits of vaccination
Benefits after GUDAIR vaccination
- Improves milk and meat yield
- Higher fertility rate: 2 more lambs per per vaccinated sheep
- Higher longevity in vaccinated animals than non-vaccinated ones
- Decrease in replacement rate
- Significant reduction of clinical cases of Paratuberculosis
Different studies have shown a general positive effect of vaccination with GUDAIR, especially in productive issues.
THE VACCINE OF CHOICE
GUDAIR is a key tool in Paratuberculosis management for sheep and goats in several countries worldwide.
THE ONLY ONE FOR PREVENTION
GUDAIR is the only vaccine approved in the world for the control of Paratuberculosis in sheep and goats. GUDAIR decreases bacterial shedding, thus reducing contamination of the environment and disease transmission.
ONE DOSE PROVIDES A LIFE-LONG IMMUNITY
GUDAIR contains an inactivated antigen of Mycobacterium avium subsp. Paratuberculosis and a last-generation lipid adjuvant that increases the immune response. A single dose of GUDAIR produces a long-lasting cellular response and immunological memory, facilitating vaccination programs.
GUDAIR reduces clinical signs, the severity of intestinal lesions, and mortality due to paratuberculosis. It also reduces fecal excretion of Mycobacterium avium subsp. Paratuberculosis.
CONTROL OF PARATUBERCULOSIS AT ANY STAGE
Vaccinated animals with GUDAIR will create an immune response decreasing the bacterial shedding of Mycobacterium avium subsp. Paratuberculosis into the small intestine. In animals that may already be infected, vaccination will also delay the onset of clinical signs, thereby reducing the bacteria in feces and morbidity-mortality rates.
Paratuberculosis causes significant losses in herds of sheep and goats, particularly in dairy farms. The benefits of vaccination with GUDAIR take into account not only the reduction of mortality and level of infection in the flock but also the prevention of future significant losses and reduced yields.
