Abstract:

Common X-irradiation in a dose of 210 r, carried out 2 hours prior to vaccination, promoted a more intensive multiplication of bacteria of the vaccine tularemia strain in the organism of guinea pigs but did not increase the duration of the abortive inapparent infection developing in the animals. The X-irradiation 400 r of mice, carried out 2 hours and 9 days prior to infection, caused an earlier and more intensive multiplication of the bacteria administered. This increased progressively, leading to the death of 100 of the animals. Author
