The study was conducted to determine the effect lapinized Swine fever vaccine on serum constituents of Large White Yorkshire pig. Twelve healthy Large White Yorkshire piglets were selected and vaccinated against Swine Fever. Blood samples were collected on 0 day (the day before vaccination) and 30th, 60th and 90th day of post-vaccination. The different serum biochemicals namely, total protein, albumin, globulin, creatinine, uric acid, calcium (Ca), inorganic phosphorus (P) and serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (SGOT) and serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT) were estimated following standard protocol. Data generated from the study were analyzed statistically. Certain serum constituents showed an increasing trend on the successive days of post-vaccination. The peak concentration of all the serum constituents was found on 60th day of post-vaccination. However, the increased concentration of serum constituents was within the normal range. A significant difference was observed in the concentrations of total protein, globulin, creatinine, serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase, serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase in the different days of post-vaccination.
