 One hot topic at the congress is the subject of avian influenza. The disease has proved to be a major threat for the global poultry industry, disrupting international trade and inducing heavy economical losses in infected flocks. Nevertheless, there is still a debate raging about the necessity of AI vaccination.

In that context, during the congress, Ceva will hold a symposium on Thursday with leading global figures, including the USDA, to address the current AI situation and discuss the differing industry perspectives. The symposium will be entitled: “Avian Influenza – The value of vaccination in changing times”. Indeed, Ceva’s vector vaccine Vectormune® AI offers a new way to control this disease in vaccinating countries around the world.
