Autogenous vaccines, also known as “custom” vaccines, have become an essential instrument in the production veterinarian’s toolbox for the control of emerging and evolving diseases. Autogenous vaccines require a reduced burden of U.S. Department of Agriculture licensing, making them rapidly accessible. Autogenous vaccines have made significant advancements in the ability to reduce disease within the poultry industry from a combination of several different advancements in regulation requirements, rapid and accurate diagnostic assessments, and improvements in manufacturing. The use of autogenous vaccines by poultry health professionals has also increased, and these custom-made products have been instrumental in combating diseases resulting from antigenic variants such as salmonellosis, colibacillosis, infectious coryza, infectious bursal disease, inclusion body hepatitis, viral enteritis, and viral arthritis and tenosynovitis.
