Abstract

Summary

Specific immunity against was induced by plasmid-encoded antigens not associated with virulence. Mice were immunised with viable bacteria from a virulence-plasmid-cured strain of . This antigenic stimulation generated specific protection against virulence-plasmid-harbouring strains of and , demonstrating that protection can be generated by organisms lacking plasmid-encoded virulence antigens.
