When HVT bivalent vector vaccines are combined with other HVT recombinant vaccines, the combination was reported to reduce the efficacy of one or both vaccines. Therefore, in 2019, Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health launched VAXXITEK┬« HVT+IBD+ND, to offer protection in one shot from Newcastle disease, MarekÔÇÖs disease, and infectious bursal disease (classic and variant types). With this innovation, Boehringer Ingelheim is able to improve the vaccination convenience for the poultry producers while keeping the benefits of the immune foundation brought by VAXXITEK┬«ÔÇÖs construct.
