Results of protective inoculation (Bes-redka's method) against anthrax in 1930 showed a significant decrease of infections in 3 districts previously heavily infected, where 41 horses and 552 cows received either 1 intradermal injection or 2 injections 12-14 days apart. Double injection appeared to have no advantage. No post-vaccinal untoward effects were noted, and no infections occurred in animals protected by inoculation. However, in the same districts fewer cases of anthrax occurred among unprotected animals, since a tannery, previously the seat of dissemination, had ceased operating.
