The relative role that humoral immunity plays in protection against infection with the intracellular bacterium, Francisella tularensis, remains controversial. Cellular immunity is thought to play the major and perhaps only role. The authors, in this article, investigate the immunologic and protective properties of immune serum collected from human recipients of the live tularemia vaccine (LVS). Sera of recipients of the vaccine demonstrated reactivity with the vaccine strain by enzyme-linked… CONTINUE READING
