X-Path™

TECHNICAL SUMMARY

What is X-Path™?
X-Path™ is a blend of beneficial bacteria and antibodies of natural origin extracted from dehydrated eggs for swine and bovine animals; both are designed to provide the animals with adequate microflora and host-specific antibodies against predominant pathogens in each species. X-Path™ is available for both swine and bovine species.

Mode of action:
Today's most modern technologies in immunology allow for the production of host-specific antibodies at prescribed levels of titer designed to combat important predominant pathogens that invade the digestive tract of young animals. These antibodies can be blended and orally administered to ensure that each animal receives the prescribed dosage needed. In newborn animals, these antibodies are assimilated by the animal, immediately creating a passive immunity. In older animals, the antibodies displace the pathogens in the intestinal tract, resulting in the expulsion of these pathogens via the excrement. Generally, animals need a minimum quantity of beneficial bacteria (microflora), to absorb nutrients in the intestinal tract and to produce substances needed in normal digestion, as well as in the protection of the animal against predominant pathogens.

Normally, when pathogens enter the digestive tract, they tend to compete against microflora in occupying internal intestinal surface (Competitive Exclusion). This creates an imbalance in the intestinal microflora, reducing the presence of lactic acid producing bacteria. In this situation, the beneficial bacteria (microflora) have been replaced by predominant pathogens, resulting in animal infection.

The components in X-Path™ provide the animal with both beneficial bacteria needed to maintain normally balanced microflora and an adequate concentration of natural antibodies against predominant pathogens. These antibodies attach to the outer membrane of predominant pathogens, in turn preventing these pathogens from attaching to corresponding intestinal receptors located at the surface of the inner intestinal wall of the animals. Antibodies also prevent the reproduction of these pathogens. Ultimately, these pathogens are inhibited and expelled, thus preventing animal disease.

Mode of Application:
X-Path™ can be administered both as a preventive and therapeutic treatment. Providing probiotics only to the animal almost always results in the infection returning in 48 hours. However, when specific antibodies are also provided as in X-Path™, a complete elimination of the infection is assured.

Composition:
X-Path™ Swine : E.Coli k88, E.Coli K99, E.Coli K987p, E.Coli F-18, Porcine Rotavirus
X-Path™ Bovine: E.Coli k99, Bovine Rotavirus Type 6 and type 10, Bovine Corona Virus, Salmonella Dublнn, Salmonella Thyphimorium
For Both, Probiotics (Host Specific): Lactobacillus Acidophylus, Bifedobacterium Longhum, Bifedobacterium Thermophylum, Streptococcus Faecium

Rates of application:
X-Path™ Swine (paste) with Vitaplex™
In new born piglets: 3 grams(once) per animal at birth (in paste form).
In growing pigs with diarrhea: 15 grams per application, every 6 to 8 hours, as needed.
In pregnant and lactating mothers: Megaenzyme™ - 100 grams per MT of feed.

X-Path™ Swine (powder)
In swine after weaning: 70 to 100 grams per MT of feed during 8 days after weaning
Thereafter: Megaenzyme™ - 100 grams/MT
Pregnant and lacting mothers: Megaenzyme™ - 100GRAMS/MT of feed.

X-Path™ Bovine (powder)
In newborn calves, at arrival: 5 grams as soon as possible as a drench. Mix 5 grams of X-Path™ in 20cc of water.
From day 1 to day 3 (inclusive): 1.5 grams per calf per feeding, in the milk.
From day 4 to day 15: 0.75 grams per calf per feeding, in the milk. The criteria is to use this level until the calf is past the scouring stage and onto a good start.
From day 16 to weaning: 0.2 grams per calf in the AM feeding. Sick or scouring calves usually respond well with a additional 5 grams per day for 2-3 days. This can be given in the milk or as a drench.


All ingredients in X-Path™ are approved by FDA under the AFCO PUBLICATION 1998 (AMERICAN FEED CONTROL OFFICIALS). Page 204 to page 215.
