Reducing lung lesions with Ingelvac MycoFLEX®

Extent of lung lesions was significantly lower with Ingelvac MycoFLEX® compared to non-vaccinated challenged control pigs.20,21,23,26

In a challenge study, using piglets born to gilts with a serological profile typical of usual field exposure to M hyo infection
(M hyo ELISA S/P ratio ranging from 0.4-1.0), the extent of lung lesions was significantly lower in the M hyo challenged pigs vaccinated with Ingelvac MycoFLEX® at 3 weeks of age, compared to non vaccinated controls.26


Similar findings were also reported in a large scale field trial where the mean lung lesion scores at slaughter were significantly reduced compared with non-vaccinated sentinel pigs.23

In this trial, pigs were vaccinated with Ingelvac MycoFLEX® at 5 weeks of age, and lung lesions were assessed at normal slaughter age.
