Leptospira Pomona Bacterin
For vaccination of healthy horses 6 months of age or older as an aid in the prevention of leptospirosis caused by Leptospira interrogans serovar pomona. Lepto EQ Innovator contains inactivated whole cultures of L. pomona with MetaStim adjuvant to enhance the immune response.
Efficacy: Immunogenicity was demonstrated by vaccination and challenge tests in 6-month-old, healthy horses. Thirty horses were vaccinated with 2 doses of either Lepto EQ Innovator (vaccinates) or saline (controls), followed by experimental challenge 3 weeks later with a heterologous strain of L. pomona. L. pomona was reisolated from all 15 control horses from at least 1 sample (urine, kidney and/or liver) while no L. pomona was reisolated from any sample from vaccinated horses. Ten weeks later, 100% of control animals were positive for leptospiremia, while no vaccinates were positive. Similarly, 93% of controls were positive for leptospiruria, while no vaccinates tested positive.
Safety: Field safety testing has demonstrated that this product is safe for use in horses 3 months of age or older, including pregnant mares. Efficacy has not been demonstrated in 3-month-old foals.
Dosage and AdministrationHorses, inject one 1-mL dose intramuscularly using aseptic technique.
Administer a second 1-mL dose 3-4 weeks after the first dose. Annual revaccination with a single dose is recommended.
