Weanling rats were immunized with a heat-labile enterotoxin contained in whole cell lysate (WCL) ultrafiltrate preparations of enteropathogenic (EPEC) and enterotoxigenic (ETEC) strains or with a purified preparation of heat-labile toxin (LT) from the ETEC strain and then challenged either with viable bacteria of each strain or the purified ETEC LT by means… CONTINUE READING
