Service, imposed several requirements. First, the vaccine may be sold only to veterinarians. Second, sales may be made only in states where State Livestock health authorities have given official authorization. Furthermore, during the term of the special license, which runs for 1 year. Diamond Laboratories must investigate any undesired effects from the vaccine and submit the findings to the Veterinary Biologies Div. The firm also has agreed to continue research to improve the vaccine. The continued research will be an extension of work that has gone on for many years. Once before, in 1965, Diamond Laboratories had a special license for a TGE vaccine ~ that one prepared from killed virus. After 2 years of use, the license was not renewed because protection the vaccine provided was poor. The new vaccine is made from modified live virus, produced by growing several virus generations in an artificial medium to minimize infectivity. Like the earlier vaccine, the new product depends on a special sequence of events for its effectiveness. Baby pigs do not get vaccinated; rather, the sow is given vaccine during pregnancy Antibodies to the disease pass from her bloodstream into her milk supply after farrowing so nursing pigs acquire the antibodies from their dams. In a test by the Veterinary Biologies Div., using a newly developed challenge virus, scientists found that 62 per cent of the pigs from vaccinated sows survived while 29 per cent of the pigs from unvaccinated sows survived. Average weight of surviving pigs at 6 weeks was 17.2 (Continued on page six) sell for $10 each on the illegal drug market. A list of known drug users in Hamilton County was also foundin the home.
