Currently, no plague vaccine exists in the United States for human use. The capsular antigen (Caf1 or F1) and two type 3 secretion system (T3SS) components, the low-calcium-response V antigen (LcrV) and the needle protein YscF, represent protective antigens of Yersinia pestis We used a replication-defective human type 5 adenovirus (Ad5) vector and(More)
The effects of recombinant interferon-gamma on the production of tumor necrosis factor in 10 dairy cows with Escherichia coli mastitis were determined. Prophylactic administration of recombinant interferon-gamma prior to the experimental E. coli challenge was effective in modifying the production of endogenous tumor necrosis factor during acute stages of(More)
Monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) have been produced which are specific for bovine tumor necrosis factor (TNF). MAb BC9 detects bovine TNF in a radioimmunoassay with a detection limit of 24 pg/ml. BC9 also neutralizes the in vitro biological function of bovine recombinant TNF. The activity of 250 ng TNF/ml was entirely neutralized by 1% ascitic fluid. When(More)
