Abstract:

Results of the vaccination of 180 persons by a chemovaccine from D. sibericus testifies to the areactogenicity and harmlessness of the preparation. The presence of complement-fixing antibodies to the antigen in the serum in 80 of the cases and of hemagglutinins in 50 of the cases has been serologically established. The data obtained in the immunization of 180 persons have confirmed the results of the experimental vaccination of 24 volunteers. Author
