Inactivated Contagious Caprine Pleuropneumonia Vaccine


CAPRIVAXTM is an inactivated Contagious Caprine Pleuropneumonia vaccine prepared from Mycoplasma capricolum subspecies capripneumoniae (Mccp), originally known as the F38 biotype. The vaccine contains lyophilised Mccp suspended in saponin.Each vaccinal dose contains a minimum of 0.15 mg of mycoplasma.


Contagious Caprine Pleuropneumonia (CCPP) is a major cause of loss in many countries in Africa and Asia which contain a total goat population of more than 250 million. Classical, acute CCPP is caused by Mycoplasma capricolum subsp. Capripneumoniae (Mccp), first isolated and shown to cause CCPP in Kenya, and subsequently it has been isolated in the Sudan, Tunisia, Oman, Turkey, Chad, Uganda, and Ethiopia. CAPRIVAX TM has proved itself, with more than 10 years of successful use all over Africa and the Middle East, as a safe and efficient means of preventing CCPP in goats. The vaccine is produced according to strict OIE standards and as a result it exhibits remarkable safety characteristics with very minimal post-vaccination reactions.
