An innovative alternative to anticoccidial drugs and vaccines that helps improve production economics.
Brand Insights from Amlan International
Eimeria are extremely persistent parasitic organisms. Controlling them in poultry typically requires rotating multiple pharmaceuticals with various modes of action or implementing a shuttle program that uses more than one anticoccidial product during flock grow-out. Coccidiosis can become even more complicated to manage when consumer demands or government regulations prevent you from using certain anticoccidial products, like ionophores, or when a product becomes ineffective due to resistance development over time. In these situations, the use of a natural anticoccidial product is your best option.
Ideally, you want a natural product that is an effective alternative to your current pharmaceutical-based coccidiosis control program. You want the product to be compatible with the anticoccidial products you can use and one that doesn’t contribute to resistance issues or require a withdrawal period. If possible, it should also have multiple modes of action against Eimeria, and directly support the intestinal health of the bird.
Natural Coccidiosis Management
Amlan® International recently launched Phylox® — a natural alternative to anticoccidial drugs that works well alone, as part of a rotation program, or as part of a bio-shuttle program to control coccidiosis. Phylox (available in select international markets) targets multiple Eimeria species with several modes of action while also helping to promote a healthy intestinal barrier and improve intestinal immunity. Additionally, there is no feed withdrawal requirement before processing.
Targets Eimeria and Improves Intestinal Health
Phylox® is a bioactive blend of antiprotozoal phytochemicals that has coccidiostat and coccidiocidal properties. It can disrupt the Eimeria cell membrane, which causes cell death via apoptosis, and can prevent oocyst sporulation by causing oxidative stress in Eimeria cells, halting oocyst cell wall formation. Additionally, it interrupts the Eimeria life cycle by binding ATPase and preventing oocyst replication. The overall effect is a reduction in the fecal oocyst output and parasite load of multiple Eimeria species.
