Immunosuppression in caprine trypanosomiasis: effects of acute Trypanosoma congolense infection on antibody response to anthrax spore vaccine
MetadataShow full item record
Trypanosoma congolense infected goats were vaccinated with Bacillus anthracis spore vaccine to determine the effect of such infection on the humoral immune response to the vaccine. The anti-anthrax antibody levels were severely depressed in infected goats. When trypanocidal therapy was administered to T. congolense infected goats 14 days after infection they developed antibody levels against Bacillus anthracis similar to uninfected controls.
