Abstract:

The report is devoted to revealing the regularities in the dynamics of hemagglutinins in great gerbils -- the main carriers of the plague microbe in the Central Asian desert plague focus -- after their initial contact with the causative agent. As a result of the single administration to great gerbils of even very small doses of the plague microbe, the production of specific antibodies took place. This indicates the very susceptibility of the animals to the plague microbe.
