Active Immunization with E. Coli J5 and its Protective Effects from Endotoxic Shock in Calves
Bovine salmonellosis is of worldwide importance due to public health concerns and causes significant economic losses to the agricultural industry. Cattle of all ages can be infected but serious infections and deaths are most often seen in calves up to ten weeks of age. The most common serotypes involved are S. typhimurium and Salmonella dublin (3–6). The major clinical manifestations associated with endotoxic shock are similar in each disease.
