Abstract:

In preparing the dry live aerosol anthrax vaccine the use of a spore culture of the STI-1 single vaccine strain and culturing of the latter on a solid medium in the AKMSh has considerably simplified the culturing process and ensured large amounts of spore culture obtained with a concentration of up to 10 billion spores in 1 mm of wash. Dry live aerosol anthrax vaccine is suitable for aerosol immunization if the calculated aspiration dose, when spraying the weighted quantity of the vaccine at 0.05 g for 1 cu m of the building by the PAV-65 device, is at least 1 mg. For a prolonged storage of the viable spores in dry live aerosol anthrax vaccine, it is necessary to store it under deep vacuum in the range of 100-150 microns and at temperatures not exceeding 10 degrees.
