Novel IBH Vaccine for Horses Tested

Novel IBH Vaccine for Horses Tested

Swiss researchers have developed and tested a novel IBH vaccine for horses that minimized the disease-associated inflammation and itching in their trial herd.

 

 

If you’ve been itching for an effective insect bite hypersensitivity (IBH) vaccine for your horses, you might soon get some relief. Swiss researchers have developed and tested a novel IBH vaccine for horses that minimized the disease’s effects in their trial herd.

It’s the only IBH vaccine for horses so far to successfully ward off the inflammation and itching caused by biting midges’ saliva in affected horses, said Antonia Fettelschoss-Gabriel, PhD, researcher in the University Hospital Zurich Department of Dermatology, in Schlieren, and at Evax Biotech, in Münchwilen, both in Switzerland.

The new IBH vaccine for horses could appear on the commercial market as early as 2021, if the additional research confirms its efficacy and safety and the transfer to large-scale production is on time, Fettelschoss-Gabriel said.

The study,Treating insect-bite hypersensitivity in horses with active vaccination against IL-5,” was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
