Patent
Merial Inc | Date: 2017-04-26

The present invention relates to veterinary or pharmaceutical formulations comprising one or more plant oils and bismuth subnitrate and methods for their manufacture and uses. The formulations are useful as a teat sealant to prevent or treat mastitis is an animal.


The present invention provides vectors that contain and co-express in vivo or in vitro immunogenic polypeptides or antigens together with an OX40L polypeptide, which functions as a genetic adjuvant. Together, the immunogenic polypeptide and the OX40L polypeptide elicit an immune response in animal or human, which is greater than the immune response elicited by the immunogenic polypeptide alone. In a particular example, the invention provides vectors encoding a Rabies G immunogenic polypeptide and a canine OX40L genetic adjuvant, which vectors elicit strong immune responses in canine against rabies virus

The present invention provides uses of aryl alkyl malononitrile compounds of formula (I), or veterinarily acceptable salts thereof, for controlling and preventing parasite infestations in animals. The invention also provides methods for controlling and preventing parasite infestation in animals comprising administering an effective amount of at least one aryl alkyl malononitrile compound of formula (I), or a veterinarily acceptable salt thereof, to the animal.


This disclosure provides attenuated Histophilus somni strains, compositions comprising same, and methods of production and use thereof. The attenuated strains may express lower or no levels of various virulence-associated genes, relative to the corresponding pathogenic bacteria Advantageously, the attenuated Histophilus somni strains may be administered orally, intranasally, intra-tracheally, or subcutaneously.

The present invention encompasses FMDV vaccines or compositions. The vaccine or composition may be a vaccine or composition containing FMDV antigens. The invention also encompasses recombinant vectors encoding and expressing FMDV antigens, epitopes or immunogens which can be used to protect animals, in particular ovines, bovines, caprines, or swines, against FMDV. The invention further encompasses methods of making or producing antigenic polypeptides or antigens.


This disclosure provides attenuated Histophilus somni strains, compositions comprising same, and methods of production and use thereof. The attenuated strains may express lower or no levels of various virulence-associated genes, relative to the corresponding pathogenic bacteria Advantageously, the attenuated Histophilus somni strains may be administered orally, intranasally, intra-tracheally, or subcutaneously.


Patent
Merial Inc. | Date: 2017-02-23

A trigger operated syringe (100) for intramammary injection of antibiotics has a fluid containing syringe cartridge (203) activated by a plunger (206) which is inserted into the syringe cartridge (203A) and expels fluid when the trigger (205) is pulled. A syringe cartridge holding mechanism (223) holds the syringe cartridge in place until the trigger (205) is released and the plunger (206) retracted. Single syringe cartridge (203) and multiple syringe cartridge (204) versions are disclosed. The plunger moves in a direction which is effectively perpendicular to the direction of movement of the trigger, allowing for ease of injection to a cows teats, and ejection of the spent cartridges.


This invention relates to compositions for combating ectoparasites and endoparasites in animals, comprising at least one 1-arylpyrazole, at least one macrocyclic lactone, at least one insect growth regulator, and at least one anthelmintic compound in combination with a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. This invention also provides for an improved methods for eradicating, controlling, and preventing parasite infections and infestations in an animal comprising administering the compositions of the invention to the animal in need thereof.


The disclosure provides a cell freezing and storage bag assembly and a method for using the assembly in banking eukaryotic cells for later seed train expansion. The bag (1) is constructed principally of fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) fabric. The bag design includes at least an inlet conduit (2) and an outlet or inoculation conduit (3), which can be sterilely welded to the source of the cells, allowing for closed system filling of the bags, which significantly reduces the risk of contamination. The bag also includes a sleeve (8), which can be thermosealed (S) to form an enclosure, which protects the inlet and outlet conduits against contamination and mechanical damage during freezing, storage and subsequent thawing. In the method, once each bag is filled, its corresponding inlet conduit is sealed (AS), and both the inlet and outlet conduits are enclosed within the sleeve. This closed system method obviates the need for sterile environments.


This invention relates to topical compositions for combating ectoparasites and endoparasites in animals, comprising at least one isoxazoline active agent and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier, optionally in combination with one or more additional active agents. This invention also provides for an improved methods for eradicating, controlling, and preventing parasite infections and infestations in an animal comprising administering the compositions of the invention to the animal in need thereof.
