Abstract:

Production of a live, dry, aerosol anthrax vaccine, from anthrax vaccine strain STI-1 spores, as well as differences from previous methods of production, are described. A 15 minute aerosol immunization session, in the presence of 0.05 g per cu. m. concentration of vaccine is said to insure inhalation of one immunizing dose of anthrax spores. Determination of storage requirements for preservation of spore viability is discussed.
