Veterinary vaccines

Veterinary vaccines have had, and continue to have, a major role in protecting animal health and public health, reducing animal suffering, enabling efficient production of food animals to feed the growing human population, and greatly reducing the need for antibiotics to treat food and companion animals.

Development of a commercially successful animal vaccine is not only influenced by various immunological factors, such as type of antigen but also by formulation and delivery aspects. 

For each vaccine, the choice of vaccine adjuvant is based upon several criteria, including the animal species.

Choosing the suitable veterinary vaccine adjuvant 
Vaccine adjuvants are a highly heterogenous collection of compounds that share one functional characteristic: the ability to enhance immune responses.

To stimulate the most appropriate immune responses, the adjuvant selection for a veterinary vaccine is based on below criteria:
Animal species 
Type of antigen
Type of immune response
Desired kinetics of the immune response
