In an attempt to enrich for potentially protective Psoroptes ovis antigens, three separate vaccine trials were conducted in which groups of sheep were immunized three times with various fractions of a soluble extract of P. ovis mites using QuilA as adjuvant. These groups, as well as controls that received adjuvant only, were challenged with P. ovis, and protective immunity was assessed by measuring lesion areas and conducting mite counts 4 and 6 weeks later. All fractions stimulated high titre… CONTINUE READING
