Phytogenic Antiviral

  • Helps to reduce the incidence of bacterial and viral diseases.

  • Helps the birds to recover faster during disease outbreaks.

  • Helps to improve the antibody titre with vaccinations.

  • Helps to repair the damaged epithelial tissues, plays an important role in the healing of the organs, damaged due to infections.

  • Anti – inflammatory activity of ANTIV reduces the inflammation of the affected organs, during disease outbreaks.

  • Reduces the total flock mortality, and improves the overall performance of the birds.

Viral attacks put the entire flock at risk.

  • Viruses are ubiquitous. They are part of the ecosystem of earth and cannot be destroyed by any antibiotic treatment. Viruses are minimum of life form without any nucleus or cell wall. Though there are many kinds, in general virus is a strand of DNA or RNA surrounded by capsid whose shape is virus specific. The capsid is surrounded by one or more protein envelopes.

  • Viruses are thus a unique life form. The surface of viral protein is studded with receptors, specific kinds of sensory organs that tell viruses about their surroundings. Viruses use these elegant sensory organs to analyse the environment and to find the cells where they are most suited for their production. Viruses are very good at surviving. They can analyse the nature of immune response that occurs against them and they can alter themselves or alter the host immune defence itself.

  • DNA virus when it multiplies within the cell, it uses a biofeed back loop to make sure copies of itself are fairly accurate. In contrast, RNA virus tends to make copies which vary a lot from the original. Many atimes these copy differences are originated by RNA virus to increase their genetic variation and hence survivability and increased reproduction in the host cell.Efficacy of vaccine in core of DNA virus remains more or less stable and long lasting. In case of RNA virus it is very hard and sometimes impossible to develop efficient vaccine.

  • The body defence mechanism consists of proper immune system at a different level. The major components of immune system are thymus, spleen, lymph system, bone marrow, white blood cells, antibodies, complement system and hormones. In poultry bursa and ceca.

  • The immune system is designed to recognise the cells that make up the body and repel and kill foreign invaders including bacteria and viruses. White blood cells called macrophages destroy germs as soon as they detect them. However, if a viral infection begins to take hold, defence system uses more powerful 'B' and 'T' lymphocytes.

How does ANTIV work

  • The viruses also inhibit dendritic cell maturation and activation lowering the response levels of T & B cells. ANTIV also helps to reduce cytokine production and lesion the severity. Eventually the immune system catches up and the viral infection is stopped. Any viral infection runs in more or less four phases.

  • Early onset.

  • Mild infection.

  • Moderate infection.

  • Severe infection.

  • 1

Application

  • Since ANTIV is basically helping the body in inhibiting viral entry into the cell and its further reproduction by denying the cellular material for its growth, it is recommended that parallel use of immuno modulators and specific use of respiratory system regulators be made.

Usage

  • 3ml / 100 birds three times a day.

  • ANTIV should be given once in a week or twice a week for all age group of birds as prevention.

  • This is irrespective of any symptoms of viral infection.

  • At the onset of infection for 7 days.

  • Mild to moderate infection for 7 to 15 days.

  • Severe infection for up to one month.

  • Then taper of the use to twice of week slowly.

  • Depopulate the viral load at the farm by regular use of ANTIV viral spray. This aspect is very important to avoid the effect of viral storm. Support of immune modulator will be useful to augment proper and effective immune system such as ADCOMP. Use Response if respiratory distress is noted.
