    A basic laboratory manual for the small-scale production and testing of I-2 Newcastle disease vaccine 2002

    Chickens are susceptible to many infectious diseases. One of the most important of these is the viral disease known as Newcastle disease, which causes devastating losses in both commercial and village chickens. Newcastle disease can be controlled by the use of vaccines. However, many Newcastle disease vaccines deteriorate after storage for one or two hours at room temperature, making them unsuitable for use in villages where the vaccine may need to be transported for hours or in some cases days at ambient temperature. The I-2 Newcastle disease vaccine is more robust and therefore does not deteriorate as quickly as traditional vaccines. This manual summarizes the basic laboratory procedures used to produce and test experimental I-2 thermostable Newcastle disease vaccine in the research and training programmes associated with the John Francis Virology Laboratory.

    Goat raising in controlled areas and vaccination in Lao PDR 2017
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The practice described here can be introduced among smallholder goat farmers to reduce their vulnerability to risks and disasters such as disease outbreaks, drought, floods, etc. The practice consists of raising goats in controlled areas instead of free roaming and allows for better livestock management and reduces the risks of spread of diseases between different herds. Furthermore, goats are vaccinated against foot and mouth disease and other parasites. The confinement in which the goats are raised consists of an enclosed area and a homestead that provides shelter and protection for the goats. Fodder is brought to the goats by the famer.
