Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

To the user:

This veterinary medicinal product contains mineral oil. Accidental injection/self-injection may result in severe pain and swelling, particularly if injected into a joint or finger, and in rare cases could result in the loss of the affected finger if prompt medical attention is not given.

If you are accidentally injected with this product, seek prompt medical advice even if only a very small amount is injected and take the package leaflet with you.If pain persists for more than 12 hours after medical examination, seek medical advice again.

To the physician:

This veterinary medicinal product contains mineral oil. Even if small amounts have been injected, accidental injection with this product can cause intense swelling, which may, for example, result in ischaemic necrosis and even the loss of a digit. Expert, PROMPT, surgical attention is required and may necessitate early incision and irrigation of the injected area, especially where there is involvement of finger pulp or tendon.

4.6Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

The injection of the vaccine may cause a transient tissue reaction at the site of injection, which may persist for three weeks and rarely up to five weeks.

The vaccination may cause a slight rise in body temperature (less than 1°C) for a transient period (less than 48 hours after injection) without any consequence to the health or performance of the animal.

A hypersensitivity reaction may occur. These are rare and an appropriate symptomatic treatment should be administered.

The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention:

-very common (more than 1 in 10 animals displaying adverse reactions during the course of one treatment)

-common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals)

-uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals)

-rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals)

-very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals, including isolated reports).

the absence of maternally derived antibodies against IBR virus or from the

5.IMMUNOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Pharmacotherapeutic group: Immunologicals, bovine rhinotracheitis virus (IBR) ATCvet code: QI02AA03

Bovalto Ibraxion is a gene specific deleted (gE), inactivated and adjuvanted (o/w emulsion) vaccine which acts by the active immunisation of cattle characterised by the production of Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis (IBR) vironeutralising antibodies.

The gE gene deletion allows differentiation between animals vaccinated with gE-negative vaccines (anti gE antibody negative, IBR vironeutralising antibody positive) and naturally infected animals (positive to both IBR vironeutralising antibody and anti gE antibody). Bovalto Ibraxion can therefore be used as a marker vaccine in association with an appropriate diagnostic test.
