Abstract:

Repository chemical sorbed anthrax vaccine given in doses of 10 and 7.5 mg proved to harmless and gave only mild postvaccinal reactions when injected subcutaneously to human beings. General and local reactions observed in the immunized individuals were mild and did not cause any loss of the working capacity. Changes in the blood picture leukocytosis, accelerated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and rise of the segmentonuclear neutrophil count and a marked positive test with anthraxin anthrax allergen noted almost in all the vaccinated individuals testifies to the presence of a specific, sufficiently marked immunization stimulation caused by the administration of repository chemical sorbed anthrax vaccine.
