SwineCast 1069, What Are Custom Vaccines? How Do they Work? And What Is Needed To Make Them?

SwineCast 1069 Show Notes:
  • Keith Wilson, DVM, senior professional service veterinarian at Boehringer Ingelheim, shares how custom vaccines are created and what pork producers should expect when custom vaccines are needed on their operations.
  • "Adjuvants are the biggest variable that impact vaccine performance," said Dr. Wilson. "Nearly everything else within a killed vaccine is fixed, such as the antigens and routes of administration."
  • Unlike commercial killed vaccines, custom-made vaccines give producers and veterinarians the option to select an adjuvant that can help solve their herd’s health challenges. Determining the optimal adjuvant to use in a vaccine is critical, because different adjuvants have different abilities when triggering immune responses.
