Retrospective Theses and Dissertations
Brucella abortus is the causative agent of bovine brucellosis, a disease that causes spontaneous abortion in cows. The most effective form of protection against this pathogen is immunization; however, Brucella abortus strain 19 (the standard vaccine against Brucella abortus) is not completely protective. The vaccination of laboratory mice with the heat shock protein, hsp60 derived from Brucella abortus, using live attenuated recombinant Salmonella typhimurium expressing this protein (hsp60) as a delivery system, and the characterization of the immune response to Brucella abortus hsp60 over a 12 week time course following vaccination is described;Infection of BALB/c strain of laboratory ...
