For more than nine decades, IDT has participated substantially in the fight against a wide variety of pathogens causing disease in animals. Today, we have secured an excellent position for our company on the veterinary market. The complex progression from the laboratory to registration and from production to sales takes place in one location. We have developed a research network consisting of highly-regarded and competent universities and other institutions in Germany and abroad. At IDT itself, all the requirements have been implemented for the processing of viral and bacterial pathogens from cultivation through to molecular biological characterization.
Our cell-cultivated vaccines against influenza, as well as our
vaccines against Salmonella Typhimurium and S. Choleraesuis,
stand out in our wide range of vaccines for pigs.
The launch of the first live salmonella vaccine against
S. Typhimurium and S. Enteriditis for use in chickens created
the possibility for establishing complex programs.
Eradication of Rabies
With our rabies vaccines for oral immunization of foxes, IDT was
and is a decisive factor in the successful eradication of
rabies in Germany and other European countries. Arial
distribution of the vaccine baits, possible even by using a fully
automated and computer-assisted system developed by a partner
for distribution via airplane (SURVIS), has reduced the threat
of rabies to the greatest extent possible. IDT is an internationally
recognized partner for researching and combating rabies
in wild and domestic animals. For instance, valuable knowledge
has been gained regarding rabies infections in dogs,
raccoon dogs and bats which has led to international
progress in the fighting of this dangerous and contagious disease.
