Abstract

SUMMARY

After immunization with Sindbis virus, T-cell deficient nude mice, compared to normal littermates, were equally protected against challenge with Sindbis virus. However, the nude mice showed about one-tenth the protection observed with normal littermates after challenge with Semliki Forest virus at a dose of 100 LD. This is consistent with our previous interpretation that sensitized T-cell populations play a major role in cross protection between the two togaviruses. The remaining low level of specific cross protection in nude mice (detectable only at a challenge dose of 10 LD) could not be attributed to an anamnestic response of neutralizing antibody to the challenge virus or to an effective antibody-dependent, complement-mediated cytolysis of infected cells . Other possible compensatory mechanisms to explain the low level of specific cross protection in nude mice are discussed.
