Japan: Pfizer Animal Health's Improvac for pigs gets approval

Pfizer Animal Health today announced it will begin to expand Japanese veterinary experience with Improvac®, Pfizer's successful pork production technology embraced by pig farmers in other countries for more than 10 years.

The Japanese Ministry of Agriculture Forestry and Fishery (JMAFF) has approved Improvac as safe and effective for use by veterinarians in pigs throughout Japan.
“In the months ahead, the experience gained with Improvac by a group of veterinarians and swine producers will enable Pfizer to support veterinarians throughout the country more effectively when Improvac becomes more widely available for prescription in late 2010,” said Yukihiro Takemoto, Livestock Business Unit Director, Pfizer Animal Health, Japan.
Pfizer plans to train and assist veterinarians and their pork producer clients on the proper use of Improvac to help them maximise the value that it can deliver to their operations.
