The Baylisascaris schroederi infection rate among wild giant pandas may reach over 50% or even 100%, making it one of the leading causes of death from primary or secondary infection in wild populations. Until now, little was known about how protective immunity to B. schroederi infection could be achieved. The present study was conducted to evaluate the immunogenicity and protective efficacy of recombinant Bs-Ag1 from B. schroederi, by cloning the full-length Bs-Ag1 gene of B. schroederi and… CONTINUE READING
