Eco Animal Health said it had entered into a second exclusive research partnership with the UK's Pirbright Institute, to develop another novel vaccine for use in chickens.
Technologies developed at Pirbright would be used to generate protective components against diseases including infectious bursal disease virus, Newcastle disease virus and infectious laryngotracheitis.
'The use of the Marek's disease vector in this technology is a significant advancement over other recombinant vaccines and will help widen the potential use of this vaccine in broilers and in breeding stock,' chief executive Marc Loome said.
