Abstract

SUMMARY

CBA/N mice, which could not produce antibodies against lipopoly-saccharide (LPS) from either or serovar , produced levels of agglutinating antibodies against leptospires similar to those produced by immunologically normal CBA mice. CBA/N mice were thus resistant to acute leptospiral infection and CBA/N immune serum passively protected immunosuppressed mice from infection. The results suggest that antibodies against LPS are not important in protection against experimental leptospiral infection in mice.
