Coglapix®
Inactivated vaccine against swine pleuropeumonia caused by Actinobacillus pleuropeumoniae.
COGLAPIX® is the only vaccine based on bacterial toxoids, that provides a strong protection against all the serotypes of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (A.p.) and without specific post-vaccination reaction at the same time. In front of the variability of the serotypes present in the field, only toxoid vaccines provide a universal protection. But one vaccine should be safe for the piglets at the same time what is usually a drawback of vaccines against A.p. COGLAPIX® associates safety with universal protection and efficacy.
