Australia's Imugene Develops Advance Vaccine

 

Australian animal health products firm IMUGENE LTD is expecting the commercial potential of its products to surge significantly in the wake of a major scientific advance in its pig and poultry vaccine delivery system. The scientific success had originated from modifications to the delivery system, called the Adenoviral Delivery Vector.

 

The new vaccine will boost the immune system of the animal or bird, through the production of antigens. This is slated to greatly improve animal health.
