avian infectious bursal disease vaccine (live)

Authorised
This medicine is authorised for use in the European Union.

Overview

Gumbohatch is a vaccine used to protect broiler chickens (reared for meat) against infectious bursal disease (IBD) virus infection caused by a very virulent IBD virus. Virulent means that the virus is capable of producing severe disease.

IBD, also known as Gumboro disease, is a highly contagious (spreads easily) viral infection of young chickens that reduces their immunity (body’s ability to fight disease) and can lead to their death at 3 to 6 weeks of age. Signs of chickens infected with Gumboro disease include trembling, ruffled feathers, poor appetite, dehydration, diarrhoea, huddling and depression. The vaccine reduces signs of the disease and damage to the bursa of Fabricius, an organ only present in birds which is part of their immune system.

Gumbohatch contains a live strain of IBD virus (strain 1052) that has been weakened so that it does not cause the disease.
