The patent claims the veterinary biological product monovalent Lawsonia intracellularis bacterin vaccine. The original application indicates that Intervet, a licensee of the patent owner, submitted two Product License Applications (PLA) to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Review of the application indicates that, except for permission to market or use the product commercially, the subject patent would be eligible for an extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156, and that the patent should be extended for one year as required by 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5)(B).
