Resistance to infection with Nocardia asteroides



Resistance to infection with Nocardia asteroides



Journal of Infectious Diseases 131(6): 665-672



Two to 6 weeks after intraperitoneal or intravenous immunization with viable N. asteroides, mice were significantly resistant to intraperitoneal challenge with an LD50-100 of N. asteroides in gastric mucin compared with unimmunized mice (p <0.03). Resistance could not be transferred to normal mice with serum or spleen cells from immune mice.
