Abstract:

Results of the study of the immunogenic effectiveness of the improved chemical anthrax vaccine for sheep support earlier published data on checking the immunogenicity of the alum antigen on sheep. It was established that a single inoculation with chemical anthrax vaccine, just as the double, is capable of causing immunity in sheep, protecting the animals from infection with 100 Dc1 of virulent anthrax bacilli. Further investigations are necessary on the determination of the minimum immunizing dose of chemical anthrax vaccine for sheep, and also the duration of immunity. Author
