Protection test and early antibody response to tetanus immunization

, : Protection test and early antibody response to tetanus immunization. Bollettino Dell'istituto Sieroterapico Milanese 59(4): 374-379

The Authors carried out a research work to study the dose-dependence of antibody response in BD2F, mice injected with tetanus toxoid. Experimental data show that it is possible to obtain an earlier resistance at least 14 days after immunization, increasing ten-fold the usual anatoxin dose administered in humans. The protection test toward 4 MLD i.v. injected of tetanus toxin proved a valuable tool for assessing the first appearance of acquired immunity.

Antibody response to vaccine injections in the presence of therapeutic doses of human tetanus immune globulin. a record of five cases. The tetanus antitoxin titres of five tetanus cases treated with 6,000-45,000 IU of human immune globulin and 2-4 doses of adsorbed tetanus toxoid were followed during 1 year. A typical response to the second injection of toxoid might be masked by...
