Dr. Plamen I asked you about the chemical composition of Stalosan F . You said it is a mixture of minerals OK. what are these minerals ?What are their concentration in the product ? Dr. Plamen I think you agree with me that when I'm going to use a new product I must know all data about the product. Finally it is a big honor to me to know your agent in Egypt.

Dear Dr. Khaled,

I appreciate your interest in our product indeed.
For the moment you cannot use Stalosan F in Egypt. Sorry.
We are in a process of registration and I will inform you when it is complete or you will hear about it.
With this regard I would like to postpone my answer, regarding composition, moreover we consider it
as a sensitive information. Hope you understand my concerns?

Dear Dr. Ezat,

Thank you for your comments.
Unfortunately I do not have any experience with the legal requirements in Saudi Arabia.
We are not presented there yet.
For the rest of the world hazard statement and precaution measures on the label are required.
In order to have approved H/P label statements, during the registration process we present product toxicity studies. Hope I answered your question?

Dear Dr Nikolov
Thank you so much for valuable information regarding Stalosan F. We are facing trouble to control Vv ibdv in Bangladesh. I'm interested to know that chemical is available in Bangladesh. If not, how we can get it?

Dear Dr. Banik,

Thank you for your kind comments.
For the moment Stalosan F is not available in Bangladesh.
I am not sure you can get it from another country without local registration?
I would like to add some more comments - for sure Stalosan F is very effective product, but most important is the complete biosecurity system to protect animal health and insure sustainable production.

Dear. ..When we study the main causes of deaths during Gumboro disease we found that not nephritis nor bleeding time is the main causes of deaths we found excessive amount of interluken and other immunological reaction is the main cause of deaths so shivering and viremia is the main symptoms in diseases folled by colder sense of chick and when use antihistamines in treating chichi it's allowed very good results in treatment

IBD is an immunosuppressant disease... Cause bursa is involved.... And if lesions are not seen on bursa than it should be on thigh muscle nd chest muscle...

I don't is an immunosuppression disease,
1. What type of vaccine used.
2. Vaccination procedure and maintain of cold chain.
3 Use immuno booster through feed or water during vaccination.

To prevent outbreaks of Gumboro in chicks, two times vaccination with intermediate plus vaccines one at 14 days of age other at 23 days of age is sufficient. It is advised to give one product like Immutos in drinking water for 3 days 1 day before and 2 days after vaccination to give better immunity. Further in case of any disease symptoms such as bursal enlargement hemorrhages on thighs breast muscles heart etc. only give jaggery in drinking water at the rate of 250 grams per 1000 chicks for 5 days, which is sufficient to completely subside the symptoms.

Dr. Choudary,
Thanks for your vaccine schedule and other details to control IBD. I feel the flock history should be taken into account before finalizing the vaccine schedule for IBD. If there is any history of IBD outbreaks at the farm, depending on the age of outbreaks, if vaccine schedule is finalized, that would be more practical as a generalized schedule may not apply in such cases.This is my opinion only.

Dear Dr. Vijaya Kumar, I have seen your comments. The schedule of vaccination I mentioned is after my experience with the disease in mainly in and around Hyderabad farms since last 25 years. One can boldly follow the schedule without any apprehension. With regards.

vaccination schedule is OK for the areas where vvIBD is endemic. The first vaccination may be replaced with D-78 in areas of lesser severity.
the disease course is only 6-8 days. with maximum mortality on days 3/4 and it gradually decreases with almost no mortality on day 7/8. A typical IBD will disappear on day 7/8, however, due to its immunosuppressive effects, it may continue as some other disease like ND, ICH, HPS etc.

In clinical disease condition one may give a vitamin/mineral solution at low doses in drinking water.
What is jaggery and its composition? Does it treat the birds suffering from IBD or is just a vita-mineral supplement?
