The study was carried out in Australia using over 4,000 pigs known to have clinical or sub-clinical ileitis. Half were injected with Enterisol Ileitis, a vaccine manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health.

Over 16 weeks (age eight to 22 weeks) the vaccinated pigs showed improved average daily liveweight gain, ranging from 30-150g per day, faster growth and reduced back fat. Mortality from ileitis was also reduced.
