Doctors John Fairbrother and Éric Nadeau developed the first vaccine against post-weaning diarrhea in piglets, a disease that decimates pig stocks worldwide. Distributed internationally for over 10 years, the Coliprotec vaccine enables herds to reach maturity and reduces economic losses for hog producers. In addition, by replacing the use of antibiotics, this Canadian innovation is helping to counter the worrisome effects of antibiotic resistance.
