Inactivated oil emulsion vaccine for the immunization of chickens against Reovirus Diseases (3 strains)
REOMUNE® 3 is an inactivated vaccine containing three avian reo viruses including strain S1133 (Tenosynovitis pathotype), strain 2408 (Malabsorption syndrome pathotype) and strain SS412 (Distinct serotype from the S1133 standard-type reoviruses).
Reovirus SS412 is a causative agent of proventriculitis and Malabsorption syndrome in broilers. The viruses contained in REOMUNE® 3 are non-cloned isolates. The adjuvant is a proprietary formulation that provides uniformly high serological titers of maximum duration.
REOMUNE® 3 is indicated to aid in the prevention of disease caused by avian reo viruses of the classical S1133 and 2408 serotypes and the variant serotype SS412. Breeder vaccination provides maternal antibodies to progeny to aid in the prevention of Tenosynovitis (viral arthritis) and the Malabsorption syndrome including feed passage, brittle bone and proventriculitis.
A prime with live tenosynovitis (reovirus) vaccine is recommended at least four weeks in advance of administration of REOMUNE® 3.
