Abstract:

A study was made of the immuno-allergic changes in workers from a leather-shoe combine and a meat-poultry packing plant who had been inoculated cutaneously with the STI anthrax vaccine. Reaction to the intracutaneous administration of anthraxin occurred in only 52 of those inoculated with the STI vaccine on the 171--314th day. In the majority of cases it was attenuated in 30--40 hours therefore, it is not expedient to consider the results of the reaction after 48 hours.
