Abstract:

Intracutaneous and subcutaneous immunization with staphylococcus toxoid guaranteed similarly high indices in the intensity of the increase of antibodies 32 AU and the degree of anti-infection protection 83.3 surviving animals. The results of calculating the dermonecrotic tests with staphylococcus cultures and toxin testified to the greater effectiveness of intracutaneous inoculations in comparison with subcutaneous. The intracutaneous administration of diphtheria toxoid caused an increase in the level of antibodies an average of up to 15 AU, and an increase of anti-infection protection 57.1 surviving animals, and was accompanied by a sharp suppression of dermonecrotic reactions. The intracutaneous immunization of rabbits with diphtheria and staphylococcus toxoids reflected sharply on the intensity and duration of cutaneous reactions, caused by the administration of the corresponding antigens.
