Studies on cross-immunity
and field trials with cell culture vaccine against bovine tropical theileriosis.
stated that cross-immunity exists between tuberculosis and leprosy, as BCG vaccination provides 20-91% protection against leprosy.
Despite partial cross-immunity between the two species, dual mycobacterial infection can occur.
As the vaccine is able to recognise and kill a strain that differs from the strain for which it was initially formulated, the flu vaccine can provide a significant level of cross-immunity
Individuals acquire permanent immunity to each strain that infects them, but there is no evidence of cross-immunity
Although the current vaccine does not contain the Fujian variant, animal studies and past experience with variant strains suggest that cross-immunity
will occur, but at a lower rate.
Experimental evidence indicates that immunization with one Salmonella serovar can generate cross-immunity against a second serovar if both organisms have the same immunodominant O-antigen on their cell surface (17-19).
Gallinarum have strong cross-immunity against colonization with S.
model, relies on the reproductive number of TB always being greater than that of leprosy.
The smallpox vaccine uses live virus to give cross-immunity
There are four major serotypes of dengue circulating in the world; infection with one serotype does not provide cross-immunity
