OBJECTIVE To evaluate use of the virulence-associated protein of Rhodococcus equi in immunizing foals against R equi pneumonia. ANIMALS Eight (experimental group) and 6 (controls) mares with their foals. PROCEDURE Virulence-associated protein extracted from R equi was used to prepare an acetone-precipitated. Triton X-extracted (APTX) antigen. After determination of the efficacy of passive immunization, in untreated foals or in foals given plasma from a horse vaccinated with APTX antigen or… CONTINUE READING
