Researchers at the University of Southern Queensland administered vibrioid and coccoid vaccines in different combinations to a small group of layers to test the efficacy of the C.Hepaticus isolate in vaccination. The results of this trial were positive, the vaccinated layers had fewer liver lesions than the positive control layers. However, only one strain of C.Hepaticus was used so the results cannot infer the efficacy of this strain against other strains of C.Hepaticus.
