Immunological response to a strain of Staphylococcus epidermidis in the rabbit: production of protective antibody.


A rabbit was immunised with a heat-killed vaccine prepared from strain 1142 of Staphylococcus epidermidis. The HA titres of the antisera against a surface-polysaccharide antigen extracted from the homologous strain were highest in the 2nd-4th weeks after immunisation and subsequently declined.
