Abstract

This study demonstrates that passive transfer of -specific antibodies before experimental cutaneous infection with the live vaccine strain of has profound effects. Recipient mice showed stronger staining for TNF-α and IL12, and larger numbers of neutrophils in skin samples after infection than control mice.
