Fort Dodge Animal Health Announces Approval of Duramune Adult

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (March 25, 2004) - Fort Dodge Animal Health, a division of Wyeth, announces the approval of Duramune® Adult, the first USDA licensed vaccine with three-year virus challenge data against a trio of deadly canine diseases - canine parvovirus (CPV), canine distemper (CDV) and canine adenovirus (CAV). The new vaccine will be available in the second quarter of 2004.
The rest of the press release can be found here. See also Virus Challenge Data Sets Standard for Modified Vaccine Protocols.

Fort Dodge's Canine Technical Report, describing the controlled challenge studies can be downloaded here.

The reason this is important is that it's the first (and so far only) vaccine that has actually been tested and found to protect against infection by distemper, parvovirus, and adenovirus for a duration of three years.
