ECO RECEIVES MALAYSIAN MARKETING AUTHORISATION FOR AIVLOSIN® FOR CHICKENS LAYING EGGS FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION

ECO Animal Health Group plc is pleased to announce that its subsidiary ECO Animal Health Limited (ECO) has received a marketing authorisation from the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency of Malaysia for the use of Aivlosin® 625 mg/g water soluble granules in chickens laying eggs for human consumption.

This approval, the second in Southeast Asia, follows the European approval received in June 2016. ECO will start selling Aivlosin® in Malaysia for the medication of drinking water for the treatment of infections caused by Mycoplasma in poultry laying eggs for human consumption, with a zero day drug withdrawal period for eggs.

ECO has begun the process of submitting the Aivlosin® regulatory files for the treatment of layers in numerous other key egg producing markets.

Aivlosin®, ECO’s patented antimicrobial, is used under veterinary prescription for the treatment of a variety of economically important respiratory and enteric (gut) diseases in poultry and pigs.

Peter Lawrence, Chairman of ECO, commented “This approval is another important step in the development of Aivlosin® for commercial layers. Malaysia is ranked as a global top twenty egg producing country and home to four of the ten largest egg producers in Asia. This latest approval demonstrates ECO’s continued progress to becoming a major force in the international market for veterinary pharmaceutical products.”
