Manufacturer: Intervet/Merck Animal Health

Pseudorabies Vaccine

Modified Live Virus

Bioengineered gI and gX Deletions

PRV/Marker Gold* vaccine is a genetically designed, live virus vaccine for the immunization of healthy pigs as an aid in the prevention of disease caused by pseudorabies virus (Aujeszky’s disease). Specific genetic modifications have been made in the vaccine virus to optimize safety and efficacy, and to allow serologic differentiation based on either gI or gX deletions.

PRV/Marker Gold Indications

For the immunization of healthy pigs 3 days of age or older as an aid in the prevention of disease caused by pseudorabies virus, including the respiratory form of the disease.

Dosage and Administration

For use in swine only. Aseptically rehydrate PRV/Marker Gold* vaccine with diluent supplied. Administer 2 mL intramuscularly or intranasally.

Pigs nursing non-immune dams may be safely and effectively vaccinated at 3 days of age or older. Pigs nursing immune dams should be vaccinated when maternal antibody levels will allow active immunization. Semiannual revaccination is recommended for pigs retained for breeding. Sows may be safely vaccinated at any stage of gestation.

PRV/Marker Gold Caution

Do not vaccinate within 21 days of slaughter. Store at 35°-45°F (2°-7°C). Use entire contents when first opened. Burn container and all unused contents. Contains gentamicin as a preservative. Anaphylactoid reactions may occur. Antidote: Epinephrine.

Note: Vaccination with PRV/Marker Gold vaccine will yield seropositive results in nondifferentiating SN, ELISA and latex agglutination tests. Distribution is limited to individuals designated by authorized officials, under such conditions as these authorities may require.
