Vaccinal tularemic infection in guinea pigs affected by radiation sickness
- 13 Downloads
Different doses of x-rays (from sublethal to 50–70 LD)administered 24 hours before the vaccination or 24 hours after it do not cause exacerbation of the vaccinal tularemic infection in guinea pigs immunized with live microbes of vaccinalB. tularense strain. As shown, no reversion of the vaccinalB. tularense strain is possible in these conditions. In our experiments irradiation had a more pronounced effect on the allergic reconstruction of the body than on the formation of the antibodies, and this is probably due to a more pronounced radiosensitivity of the mechanisms effecting the process of allergization of the body as compared to those of antibody formation.
