Abstract:

The work described in this annual report covers an extended period of contract support which covers the period July 1, 1979 to December 31, 1979. This period is supported by contract extension of our previous efforts at elucidating the role of cellular and humoral immunity in Coxiella burnetii infections. This report details our findings of the role of passive antibody on C. burnetii immunity and introduces our initial attempts to adapt the luminol assay to detect activated macrophages that we know are needed to combat C. burnetii infections.
