Abstract:

By means of skin-allergic tests with anthraxin, it is possible to provide reliable documentation of the immune-allergic readjustment of the human organism to the introduction of anthrax both by the aerosol and the skin method. Immunization against anthrax with dry live aerosol anthrax vaccine is safe, nonreactogenic, and not inferior in effectiveness to the subcutaneous vaccination method. It is somewhat superior to the cutaneous method, as indicated by experiments on animals and observations of human subjects 5232 individuals.
