Jongju In­sti­tute of Biological Medicine for Poul­try is proud of its great con­tri­bu­tions made to the progress of the coun­try’s poul­try farm­ing.

The in­sti­tute, since its found­ing in the 1960s, has been de­voted to the de­vel­op­ment of pre­ven­tive medicines for poul­try dis­eases, thus so­lid­i­fy­ing the foun­da­tion for poul­try farm­ing of the coun­try and in­creas­ing egg and meat pro­duc­tion.

Most of the vac­cines for poul­try dis­eases be­ing used across the coun­try are prod­ucts of the in­sti­tute.

When the out­break of bird flu pre­sented it­self as a dif­fi­cult prob­lem world­wide, the in­sti­tute suc­ceeded in de­vel­op­ing vac­cines in a short span of time and guar­an­teed the safety of the poul­try farm­ing in the coun­try.

Keenly aware of the im­por­tance of poul­try farm­ing in im­prov­ing the peo­ple’s stan­dard of liv­ing, sci­en­tists and tech­ni­cians of the in­sti­tute are di­rect­ing their ef­forts to de­velop sev­eral kinds of vac­cines that suit the spe­cific con­di­tions of the coun­try and are highly ef­fi­ca­cious.

Re­searchers at the tis­sue cul­ture depart­ment in­clud­ing its head Dr. Hong Thae Sik, vis­ited sev­eral chicken and duck farms to an­a­lyze sci­en­tif­i­cally the ori­gins and char­ac­ter­is­tics of poul­try dis­eases. In the course of this they found out the rea­son for de­cline in egg lay­ing and con­ceived the idea of the vac­cine against it. After pool­ing their cre­ative wis­dom and ef­forts and con­duct­ing dozens of ex­per­i­ments, they suc­cess­fully made the vac­cine against the syn­drome of lay­ing de­cline. It is highly ef­fi­ca­cious for pre­vent­ing the de­crease in egg lay­ing by 30-40 %, thus en­joy­ing pop­u­lar­ity at chicken farms.

The in­sti­tute has made con­sid­er­able pro­gresses in the re­search into mak­ing all the pre­ven­tive medicines with SPF germ-free hatch­ery eggs and rais­ing their qual­i­ties in re­cent days.

Along with this it has stream­lined and nor­mal­ized the pro­duc­tion of vac­cines for bird flu so as to pro­vide them with poul­try farms to pre­vent the oc­cur­rence of the dis­ease.

With high pa­tri­otic zeal to ren­der greatly to the coun­try’s poul­try farm­ing by de­vel­op­ing highly-ef­fi­ca­cious vac­cines and medicines all the sci­en­tists and tech­ni­cians of the in­sti­tute are mak­ing new suc­cesses.
