Indian Immunologicals Ltd

Company Profile
National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) established Indian Immunologicals Ltd. (IIL) in 1982 with the objective of making Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) vaccine available to farmers at an affordable price. The technology for FMD vaccine manufacture was obtained from M/s. Wellcome Foundation, UK. The plant in Hyderabad today has a capacity to make 360 million trivalent doses of FMD vaccine, making it the largest producer of this vaccine in the world.
IIL is the largest veterinary biological company in India with a range of vaccines for cattle, sheep and canine segments. Combined with its presence in the formulations segment, IIL holds the third position in the Indian animal health market. IIL is also a major player in the human vaccine market in India focusing on the pediatric vaccine and rabies vaccine segments. IIL holds the third position in this market.
IIL established Human Biologicals Institute (HBI) in 1999 to manufacture modern Tissue Culture Anti Rabies Vaccine (TCARV) for human use at Ooty, Tamilnadu.  Based on the capacity created by IIL, the Government was able to phase out usage of NTV from Government hospitals.  IIL is now the largest producer and supplier of the human rabies vaccine with a capacity of nearly 10 mio. doses per annum.
In 2003, HBI established facilities in Hyderabad for producing vaccines for the Universal Immunization Programme (UIP) such as DPT, TT, DT, Hepatitis–B and Measles vaccines. The facility was inaugurated by the former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.  IIL is on the verge of obtaining manufacturing license of other human vaccines such as the combination DPT and Hib (quadrivalent) vaccine, the combination DPT, Hib and Hepatitis B (Pentavalent) vaccine and the Hepatitis-A vaccine.
The Research and Development team at IIL has been working on new generation technologies to develop new vaccines such as an oral Human Papilloma virus vaccine, Recombinant Dengue Vaccine, Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine, Typhoid vaccine, Hepatitis-A vaccine and Monoclonal antibodies against a number of diseases.
IIL has now built a new animal health formulation facility outside Hyderabad in Biotech Park – Phase II at Karkapatla.  This is the largest such Formulations plant for the animal health market in India.  This site also houses new manufacturing facility for human rabies vaccine.
IIL operates an animal nutrition and feed plant in Rajkot, Gujarat, which manufactures standard and specialized cattle feed, feed for laboratory animals and a range of animal nutrition products. These products are targeted at improving productivity of livestock in India through better nutrition.
In FY 2014-15, IIL posted sales revenues of 4830 mio. IIL employs about 1200 people.
IIL pursues not only the mandate of NDDB to provide products and services to enhance the quality of livestock in the country, but also uses its technological capabilities for the benefit of the people of India. IIL strongly believes that its mission of "biotechnology in healthcare made affordable and accessible" can be actively pursued only with sound technology base in modern biotechnology.

Animal Health
Animal health banner
IIL manufactures and markets a wide range of animal health vaccines and formulations. Illfeatures among the top three producers of FMD vaccine in the world and caters to more than 80%  of  FMD vaccine for  the control programme in India. Following the successful introduction of FMD vaccine - "Raksha", Illlaunched the tissue culture rabies vaccine "Raksharab" in 1989. This  was  the  first  tissue  culture  vaccine  in the  animal  health  market. Subsequently,  Illdeveloped  several bovine, ovine  and canine  vaccines through its own  R  & D  efforts  and introduced these  to the Indian and international  markets.  These  were  Rakshavac  T (Theileriosis  vaccine), Megavac-6   (Multi-component   Canine vaccine);   Sheep   vaccines   viz., Enterotoxaemia, Sheep pox and PPR; as well as bovine vaccines against HS and BQ.
IIL is the first and only manufacturer of a combined vaccine against FMD, HS and BQ (Raksha-Triovac), in the world. Illis  also  the first company  to introduce Brucellosis vaccine - "Bruvax" in the Indian market; Bruvax-Pius with  S19  strain and Bruvax Delta with RB51 strain are leaders  in their respective segments.
IIL also  markets  a wide range  of  veterinary  formulations and veterinary nutraceuticals developed after extensive research on nutritional requirements of the livestock sector.
IIL's innovative formulation "Nimovet" is a brand leader in the NSAID Segment. Other  animal health  care  products  viz.,  lvectin,  Vetfen, Xylaxin, B.ovicef, Garbhamin, lnimox, Bovoplex, Tikkil are the leading brands in their respective segments.
IIL is the first company to introduce "Area Specific Mineral Mixture" in the Indian market, with almost 14 variants for 14 different states. Other unique products such as Calsagar Granules (Oral Calcium supplement for Cattle); 4P (Nutritional supplement for pre and post parturition); Goudhara Shakti (Bypass Fat) are well accepted in the Indian market.
Human Health
Human health
IIL entered the human vaccine market in 1999. Human Biologicals Institute (HBI), a division of Ilslet up a manufacturing facility in Ooty in 1998 to produce the country's first indigenous purified vero cell rabies vaccine (PVRV). This is being marketed under the brand name "Abhayrab". Introduction of Abhayrab helped the country phase out use of the older unsafe sheep brain vaccine.
HBI created a franchisee network of doctors (Abhay Clinic) and dealers (Abhay Shoppe). These have not only helped in creating a strong retail presence for HBI, but also became successfulmodels for delivering affordable healthcare through microfranchising in a developing country such as India.
The success of Abhayrab emboldened HBI to embark on building a new vaccine facility in Hyderabad in the year 2006 to manufacture other human vaccines such as OPT Vaccine - AbhayTAG, Tetanus Vaccine - AbhayTOX & Recombinant Hepatitis B - Elovac B.
HBI today is a major player in the human vaccine·market in India, focusing on the pediatric and rabies vaccine segments. HBI is also the largest supplier of pediatric vaccines to India's large universalimmunization programme.
HBI's new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Karkapatla in Medak district will augment the capacity of Abhayrab. In the next phase, Illwill produce combination vaccines for children in this facility.

IIL's  research  efforts are directed  at  developing  frontier  technologies  in biological, diagnostics and vaccines. Neglected tropical diseases, which are of little interest to the western countries but very relevant to a country like India, are the major focus of the research. Il's research team comprises scientists with interdisciplinary areas of expertise who work on developing various vaccines using platform technologies such as recombinant strains for multiple antigen production, hybridoma for monoclonal antibodies, protein polysaccharide  conjugations  and. virus  like  particles  through  molecular biology.
IIL has research collaborations with severalreputed national and international institutes such as Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), USA; National Institute of Health  (NIH),  USA; Institute  of  Animal  Health,  UK; Harvard Medical School, USA; Centre for Disease Control (CDC), Taiwan; Centre  Hospitalier  Universitaire  Vaudois, Switzerland;  US  Army Medical Research  Institute  of  infectious  Diseases,  USA;  GAlVmed,  UK; Indian Veterinary Research Institute, etc.
Reaching the needy
IIL's journey has crossed many milestones from a single vaccine manufacturer to a large biological manufacturer exploiting biotechnology for the benefit of the people in the developing world.
The true spirit of IIL's mission "Biotechnology in healthcare made afforpable and accessible" will be fully accomplished only when vaccines reach those who direly  need them.  IIL assumed  the responsibility  for  becoming  a vaccination services provider in addition to being a vaccine producer.
In summary, IIL's mission of "biotechnology in healthcare made affordable and accessible" encompasses sound strategies both in the laboratory and the market place and is built around  committed partnerships that work in a synergistic manner.
