Abstract

Monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) to the fraction 1 (F1) protein of protected mice against fatal pneumonic as well as bubonic plague from wild-type F1+ organisms. The rare isolation of a virulent F1- isolate from surviving animals supports earlier studies suggesting that improved vaccines should consist of immunogens to protect against F1 - variants. The high degree of protection with IgG MAb suggests that secretory IgA is not required for protection from pneumonic plague.
