For the passive immunisation of piglets by the active immunisation of pregnant gilts and sows in order to induce colostral antibodies against strains of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Derby, S. enterica subsp. enterica serovar Infantis and S. enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhimurium. In suckling piglets passive immunisation leads to a decrease in colonisation of inner organs (ileo-caecal lymph nodes, ileal wall and colon wall) by the above Salmonella serovars.

Duration of immunity: in naturally suckled piglets protection will persist for 30 days (in piglets weaned at 21 days of age).
