Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh India (PressExposure) November 17, 2011 -- RI Technologies' (www.researchimpact.com) market insight report on Veterinary Vaccines covers the Types of Veterinary Vaccines and the different Species for which Vaccines are present in the market. The Types of Veterinary Vaccines covered include Live Attenuated, Inactivated, Recombinant and Other (Conjugate Vaccines, DNA Vaccines, Toxoids etc). The Species include Bovine, Porcine, Poultry, Canine & Feline, Ovine & Caprine and Other (Equine, Fish, Wild Animals etc.). The study includes estimations and predictions for the total global Veterinary Vaccines market and also key regional markets including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific Latin America, Middle East and Rest of World. Business profiles of 13 major companies are discussed in the report. The report serves as a guide to global Veterinary Vaccines industry, covering more than 240 companies that are engaged in the development and supply of Veterinary Vaccines. Information related to recent product releases, product developments, partnerships, collaborations, and mergers and acquisitions is also covered in the report. Exclusive graphically illustrated exhibits (154) complement the text.
Application of genomics and proteomics plays an important role in vaccinology and has resulted in developing new vaccines and also improving the efficiency of present vaccines. Subunit vaccines, recombinant vaccines, DNA vaccines and vectored vaccines are rapidly gaining scientific and public acceptance as the new generation of vaccines and are considered as alternatives to current conventional vaccines. Almost 2000 of the licensed vaccines in the US are killed or live attenuated bacteria or viruses. Development in molecular biology, immunology and genetics has enhanced the production of safer and more effective vaccines. It is also pivotal to formulate and deliver these vaccines appropriately to maximize its potential in pathogenesis and vaccinology.
Immunological research in animal species and means of stimulation of immunity should be intensified greatly. This is made easier with the access to genome sequences of major species such as cattle, dogs, pigs etc. Research on adjuvants which are cable of stimulating innate immunity is also of major importance. The methods of vaccine administration are an important aspect in veterinary vaccinology, especially in the case of vaccines for wild and domestic animals. These animals are not only hosts to identified diseases, but also for potential diseases that have not been identified yet. Certain vaccines are meant only for the preservation of endangered species.
The plant-based vaccine technology works by making plants the production centers of the requisite proteins to develop the vaccines. Thus, these plants become the veritable storehouses for vaccine antigens that include bacteria, viruses and parasites. Another great benefit of the technology is its cost-effectiveness as not much cost is involved in the raising of plants. However, scientists have to keep a watchful eye to allergies to these vaccines. 'The vaccine revolution' known as 'DNA vaccines' is used in protecting disease causing infection. This technique involves inserting of a specific part of pathogen DNA into a living host. The host produces cells that have the ability to make proteins produced by invading pathogens leading to response against the infection. Further advancements include genetic engineering applications to produce edible vaccines. For creating edible vaccines, the genetic material of a plant is changed that helps in synthesizing e.g. Fruit. This is useful for countries lacking storage facilities or staff to administer vaccines to its people. Progression and Cause of veterinary diseases and bacterial components identified can be used as antigens which stimulate the immune response to protect the animals against relevant disease. Vaccines with individual antigens are purer than the existing vaccines (which are killed whole cell bacteria or cultured supernatants containing mixture of chemically inactivated toxins) as they generate an effective and more focused immune response.
