Our portfolio aims to eliminate >$25B USD of annual losses to producers caused by a handful of devastating diseases(1)
Estimated global annual losses to producers from necrotic enteritis (NE) to reach $8B -$12B USD by 2025 (1).
2015 annual losses from (NE) caused by Clostridium perfringens was estimated to be more than $6B USD globally, likely underestimated due to unreported subclinical disease (4,5).
Estimated global annual losses to producers from coccidiosis to reach $14B USD by 2025 (1).
2016 annual losses from Eimeria species causing coccidiosis in poultry estimated to be $11.2B USD (3).
Estimated global Annual losses to producers from Salmonella to reach $1B USD by 2025 (1).
A 2020 estimate showed Salmonella food-born illnesses derived from poultry cost Americans up to $2.8B USD annually (2).
Estimated global annual losses to producers from Vibrio parahaemolyticus to reach $2B USD by 2025 (1).
A 2013 estimate showed Early Mortality Syndrome (EMS) in white leg shrimp is caused by V. parahaemolyticus and resulted in $1B USD loss each year in Asia (6). Since EMS emergence in 2009, it has led to an estimated cumulative economic loss of $43B USD (7).
Estimated global annual losses to producers from White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) to reach $2 billion USD by 2025 (1).
A 2012 estimate showed WSSV resulted in a cumulative loss of $8-14B USD since its emergence in the 1990’s (8).
