Animal vaccination and the veterinary pharmaceutical industry
|Author(s) :||D. O’Brien & S. Zanker|
The market for veterinary vaccines is spread across species but it is limited in size and the development of vaccines is becoming more complex and expensive. Vaccines are amongst the most effective means of preventing disease in both animals and humans. In many cases, diseases have been eradicated or their impact on animal health and welfare greatly reduced. It is an ethical responsibility to ensure the availability of a wide range of vaccines even where the market needs to be financially supported, as in the case of less common animal species and those with less common conditions (commonly referred to by the acronym MUMS: Minor Use and Minor Species).
