- Protect from direct sunlight.
Each 0,1 mℓ dose of NOBILIS® ND BROILER contains ≥ 20 PD50 units of inactivated Newcastle Disease virus (the Newcastle Disease virus antigen induces ≥ 4 log2 HI units per 1/50 dose). The virus is inactivated with formalin and suspended in the aqueous phase of a water-in-oil emulsion.

- After opening, the contents of the bottle should be used within 3 hours.
- Opened bottles not used should be destroyed.
- Do not market chickens for slaughter purposes for at least 6 weeks after vaccination.
- Ensure that chickens marketed do not have swellings at the vaccination site, as this may result in the condemnation of the chickens.
- Do not mix the vaccine with other vaccines, except when administered simultaneously with live Newcastle Disease vaccines.
- Vaccination of chickens in production may lead to a slight drop in egg production.
- Accidental self-injection may lead to a severe local allergic reaction. Consult a physician informing him/her that the vaccine contains a mineral oil.
- KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN, ANIMALS AND UNINFORMED PERSONS.
- Although this vaccine has been extensively tested under a large variety of conditions, failure thereof may ensue as a result of a wide range of reasons. If this is suspected, seek veterinary advice and notify the registration holder.
- Vaccinate healthy chickens only.
- Observe aseptic precautions. Ensure that all vaccination equipment (needles, syringes, etc.) are clean and sterile prior to use.
- Ensure that all equipment is kept clean and sterile during vaccination.
- Avoid intravenous injection.
- It is essential to adhere to the vaccination programme to maintain a satisfactory immune response.
- It is good vaccination practice to avoid contact with the eyes, hands and clothing when handling the vaccine.
Directions For Use
USE ONLY AS DIRECTED.
Recommended Vaccination Programme
NOBILIS® ND BROILER is administered by injection to day-old chickens, in combination with a live Newcastle Disease vaccine (eg. NOBILIS® ND CLONE 30), administered according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The chickens vaccinated in this way will be protected against Newcastle Disease for up to 8 to 9 weeks of age.
Dosage and Administration
- Inject 0,1 mℓ per broiler chicken intramuscularly into the thigh, or subcutaneously into the back of the neck.
- Allow the vaccine to gradually reach room temperature (20 ºC to 25 ºC) prior to use.
- Shake well before use and at regular intervals during the vaccination process.
- Remove the aluminium overseal and the vaccine is ready for use.
- Inject all the chickens in the flock.
- In healthy chickens no clinical reaction to the vaccination will be observed. For some weeks after vaccination a slight swelling may be felt at the site of injection. This does not constitute permanent damage of the tissue, provided the vaccination has been carried out aseptically.
- No interactions have been found when administered simultaneously with live Newcastle Disease vaccines.
Bottles containing 500 mℓ, sufficient for 5 000 doses respectively, packed in outer cardboard cartons.
