The bacterial extract OM-89 is used for the treatment of recurrent infections of the urinary tract. It consists of immunostimulating components derived from 18 Escherichia coli bacterial strains and constitutes a non-specific leukocyte activator. We here could demonstrate for the first time that, in a long-term immunization protocol, OM-89 acts as an effective immunogen in mice. After multiple parenteral applications of the extract, OM-89-specific antisera were obtained; the maximum serum… CONTINUE READING
