  • Adjuvant: complete Freunds adjuvant
  • Adjuvant: incomplete Freunds adjuvant

Host Response

Mouse Response

  • Host Strain: C3H/HeN
  • Vaccination Protocol: Four-week-old female mice were primed intraperitoneally with 20 μg of each immunogen in 200 μL of complete Freund's adjuvant. Three boosts containing the same amount of immunogen in incomplete Freund's adjuvant were administered at 2, 5, and 8 weeks following the initial injection (Probert and LeFebvre, 1994).
  • Challenge Protocol: Ten days following the final boost, mice received a subcutaneous inoculation containing 107 SON 188 organisms in 100 μl of BSK II medium (Probert and LeFebvre, 1994).
  • Efficacy: Mice immunized with recombinant OspB protein were protected from challenge with Borrelia burgdorferi (Probert and LeFebvre, 1994).
