Project Description
« on: September 07, 2010, 14:07:27 »
The main objective of this project is to develop a cost-effective vaccination strategy for the poultry production, hereby reducing the colonization of Campylobacter in both parental and broiler flocks.
Vaccination is one of the few measures that can be applied to reduce the colonization of Campylobacter in free range organic poultry. The project aims to identify a vaccination strategy based on reduction, since risk assessment studies have shown that a 2 log reduction of colonization in poultry can reduce the risk of human infection by 30 times.  
Different candidate vaccines will be optimized to obtain a cost-effective production of low-risk poultry if feasible.

The CamVac project is supported by The Danish Counsil for Strategic Research.
