Major Achievements

CIF IVRI
Recombinant Cocktail Vaccine
  • Genetically modified S19 strain of Brucella abortus (S19Δper) as vaccine candidate.
  • Whole genome sequencing of Brucella abortus S19Δper, Pasturella multocida (bovine and duck origin) and multidrug resistant E. coli isolates.
  • Recombinant antigen based latex agglutination test for sero-diagnosis of leptospirosis.
  • Freedom status from Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia infection in cattle & buffalo obtained from OIE.
  • Tube based LAMP for detection of multiple pathogens - Brucella, Leptospira and BoHV1.
  • Sero diagnostic test for Caprine Pleuropneumonia in goats
  • Indirect ELISA for detection of antibodies against P. multocida.
  • Recombinant cocktail comprising rOmpA and rOmpC was evaluated against Salmonella challenge.
  • Chimeric DNA vaccine construct and recombinant fusion protein generated against bovine brucellosis as candidate antigens.
  • Immunoreactive cell-wall associated proteins of Clostridium chauvoei were identified.
  • Repository of bacterial and fungal cultures.
  • Analysis of about 1000 clinical samples of neonates revealed E. coli, Group A Rota virus, picobirna virus, Eimeria spp. and Clostridium perfringens to be the major pathogens
  • Multi drug resistant E. coli recorded among neonates.
