Abstract:

The dry living tularemia vaccine of NIIEG, prepared from vaccinal strains, is capable of preserving its activity for a long time up to 1.5-2 years. Of the two strains proposed by Gaiskii - Ondatra IV and No. 15 - the most suitable for vaccination of men is the strain No. 15. The dry living tularemia vaccine from the strain No. 15 Possesses high immunogenic properties both for laboratory animals guinea pigs and white mice and for men. The safety of the dry living tularemia vaccine has been demonstrated on experimental animals and on a large number of men over 30,000 men have been inoculated. For vaccination of men it is recommended that the dry living tularemia vaccine be employed once in doses ranging from 10 to 25 million microbes. The new strain No. 10 which we found was high immunogenic properties and can apparently be, after a preliminary testing on men, employed for preparation of a polyvaient dry living tularemia vaccine.
