Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Rabbits were immunized with soluble Entamoeba histolytica antigen with an aqueous suspension of trehalose-6,6'-dimycolate used as the adjuvant. Induction of protective immunity in the immunized animals was demonstrated by enhanced humoral and cell-mediated immune responses and 100% survival after challenge. Administration of soluble antigen only failed to induce a similar degree of protective immunity. Trehalose-6,6'-dimycolate alone produced only a slight increase in nonspecific resistance.
