    IMUGENE’S BREAKTHROUGH ANIMAL HEALTH TREATMENTS WIN CSIRO MEDALScientists from Australian animal health and biotechnology group Imugene and CSIRO have been awarded one of Australia’s most prestigious scientific prizes. The CSIRO medal was awarded for developing an innovative productivityenhancer for the $US2 billion a year poultry market.CSIRO team leaders Dr Mike Johnson, Dr John Lowenthal, and Dr AdrianHodgson, CEO of VectoGen, Imugene’s production animal subsidiary, received the CSIRO Medal for identifying a novel method of delivering the naturalproductivity enhancers called cytokines through the patented Adenoviral Vectordelivery technology.Higher Education Minister Brendan Nelson and Science Minister PeterMcGauran presented the team with the award at Federal Parliament House in Canberra this week.The new treatment is an immunological product – not an antibiotic, drug orhormone. Initially, it’s aimed at the poultry industry. The new technology willreduce the reliance on antibiotics, promoting sustainable production of safe, high-quality food while improving animal welfare.Dr Hodgson said the award reflects the success of the Groups scientificachievements, the results of which are a significant breakthrough for the poultry industry globally. “The Adenoviral Vector delivery technology does away with the need to treatanimals with potentially harmful and increasingly ineffective antibiotics. Instead, it uses the naturally occurring chicken proteins called cytokines to boost theproductivity and improve the health of the chickens.”
