Abstract

The role of antibodies in protection against B. bovis infection in cattle is reviewed and it is shown that they are an important effector mechanism. The use of protective antigens for vaccine production is also discussed and it is concluded that prospects are good provided techniques for obtaining...

Abstract

The haemolytic activity of serum complement was measured in cattle during B. bovis infection. It fell significantly on the 5th day after infection and was not detectable by the 10th day. After clinical recovery between 15 and 20 days after infection it was again detected in serum and gradually...
