Amlan's Calibrin-Z approved by Argentinian authorities



Amlan International announces that Calibrin-Z has been approved for use as an intestinal adsorbent for the control of disease-causing bacterial toxins from Argentina's Ministry of Agriculture. 


Regulatory approval was granted after a review of Calibrin-Z's extensive efficacy data, resulting in its status as the first product worldwide recognised to control bacterial toxins produced by pathogenic bacteria such as Clostridium perfringens, E. coli and Salmonella sp. 


 "Such an approval is a rarity, especially in such a challenging regulatory environment," said Dr. Ron Cravens, president of Amlan International. "As the livestock industry continues to move away from using antibiotics as growth promoters, producers are beginning to realise the economic impact of toxins produced by pathogenic bacteria.  Bacterial toxins cause notably greater economic loss to the global livestock industry than do mycotoxins and Calibrin-Z is positioned to offer an added level of proven protection for animals challenged with enteric diseases."


More than 70 clinical studies and recent work from the USDA, demonstrate the product's ability to adsorb bacterial toxins thereby reducing the effects of enteric diseases-a major source of economic loss in the livestock industry. 


The regulatory approval for Calibrin-Z is for poultry, swine, and cattle.
