GONZALEZ RODRIGUEZ, Andrés et al. Evaluation of the vaccine potentiality of 2 strains from Leptospira interrogans serogroup Ballum . Rev Cubana Med Trop [online]. 2005, vol.57, n.1, pp. 63-64. ISSN 1561-3054.
Two vacine candidate strains from Ballum serogroup were characterized and their immunogenicity and protective power were studied in hamster. The monovalent vaccine formulations obtained showed a high immunogenicity and capacity of homologous protection and, in a lesser degree, of cross protection.
