Hi Jenny and Rod -

A Filipino veterinarian, Dr. Jay Jacela, is part of the KSU PCV Research Team and was heavily involved in these PCV2 studies. He was the primary investigator of 2 of the 4 trials mentioned in the article. In the 2nd and 4th study, Circumvent PCV (Intervet) was used and in the dose study, Fort Dodge PCV vaccine (1-dose) and the Intervet PCV vaccine (2-dose) was used. I wouldn't be surprised if the PCV vaccine used in the 1st study was Intervet's vaccine.
