Biofel B inj. ad us. vet.
Inactivated feline vaccine against Lyme borreliosis
|type of preparative:||Vaccines|
|target species animals:||Cat|
Composition - 1 ml:
Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato inactivata:
Borrelia garinii min. 3 x 108.0
Borrelia afzelii min. 3 x 108.0
2% aluminium hydroxide gel, sodium merthiolate, saline buffer
When administered into the vaccinated animal, the antigen contained in the vaccine is distinguished as a foreign substance and a wide range of protective mechanisms in the organism is activated (macrophage, opsonins, interleukins, B-lymphocytes etc.), in consequence of which specific antibodies against antigen determinants contained in both vaccination borrelia strains are created. These specific antibodies avert subsequential infection development upon contagion - B. garinii, B. afzelii and with regard to group antigens against B. burgdorferi sensu stricto strains, too. Another preventive effect consists in prevention of infection transfer in ticks that lose their infection ability by sucking on immunized animals.
The titre of antibodies in the vaccinated cats gradually increases; optimum level is reached 2 to 3 weeks after the first vaccination.
The fully developed immunity lasts for one year.
For active immunization of cats over 12th week of age against Lyme borreliosis.
