Innovax-ILT is an innovative vaccine that protects against both infectious laryngotracheitis (ILT) and Marek’s disease (MD). It is a highly effective method of ILT control and provides safe, long-term protection.
One single vaccine for long-lasting protection
Easy to apply — day-old or in ovo hatchery application
No respiratory reactions — improved bird performance
No risk of “rolling reactions” and reversion to virulence
How It Works
When Innovax-ILT is applied, it causes an immune response in the vaccinated chicken. The production of antibodies against the I and D glycoproteins stops the actual ILT virus from attaching itself to the cells to prevent infection. Innovax-ILT also results in an immune response against MD. This includes the activation of natural killer cells and macrophages, as well as the production of antibodies.

Long-Lasting, Reaction-Free Protection
Innovax-ILT uses the herpesvirus of turkey (HVT) as its foundation to deliver long-lasting protection against both ILT and MD without the costly reactions of conventional live vaccines. Convenient to use, Innovax-ILT can be administered in a single dose in the hatchery either in ovo or by subcutaneous injection of chicks at one day of age and can be easily combined with other respiratory vaccine programs. It supplies long-term immunity without post-vaccine reactions.
Healthier Flocks, Increased Productivity
The innovative Innovax-ILT vaccine has many advantages over traditional live virus vaccines to improve overall flock health and performance. By eliminating the risk of ‘rolling reactions’ flock health is enhanced, and without the need for revaccinations in the field labor costs are also lower. Using an HVT-based vaccine delivers more effective disease control too – live ILT virus cannot be spread in the poultry facility and the risk of interference between live vaccines against other respiratory diseases is removed.
Effective protection begins at the hatchery with either in ovo or subcutaneous application. As a replacement for Marek’s only vaccination, Innovax-ILT does not change any hatchery vaccination processes.
