Serum antibody and cellular responses in LEW and F344 rats after immunization with Mycoplasma pulmonis antigens.

Abstract

Mycoplasma pulmonis causes a chronic respiratory disease in rats which is more severe in LEW than in F344 rats. This study compared the ability of each of these rat strains to produce specific immune responses to M. pulmonis antigens. By an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, LEW rats were found to produce approximately 10 times lower levels of specific… (More)
