Indian Immunologicals Limited (IIL) has signed a MoU with Argentinas Instituto Nacional de Tecnologia Agropecuaria (INTA) and Littoral Biologics of Argentina for transfer of technology for Bovine Parasitic vaccines in India.
According to a statement by IIL, “Introduction of vaccines against haemoprotozoan infections transmitted by ticks such as Babesiosis and Anaplasmosis will prevent loss in productivity in cattle and immensely benefit dairy farmers.”
INTA is Argentinian federal agency in charge of the generation, adaptation and diffusion of technologies.
K Anand Kumar, Managing Director, IIL said, "Economic losses due to Babesisosis alone in India are estimated to be about USD 57.2 million.”
"IIL is only vaccine manufacturer in India which is capable of producing effective parasitic vaccines for animals with vast experience in producing vaccine against haemoprotozoan Theileria annulata, since three decades. IIL recently introduced vaccine against Porcine Cysticercosis, a parasitic vaccine for pigs. This agreement with the Argentinean collaborators will go a long way in uplifting productivity among dairy farmers in India.” he added
