Abstract

The immunogenicity of the bivalent equine influenza vaccines (types A/Eq1 and A/Eq2) plain, or adjuvanted with aluminum hydroxide, produced at the Instituto Butantan, São Paulo, Brazil, was evaluated on horses sera taken before and after immunization by haemagglutination-inhibition (HI) and single radial haemolysis (SRH) tests. Seroconversion curves were established through weekly evaluations demonstrating good immunogenicity of both vaccines. Better humoral antibody titers were obtained with adjuvanted vaccine compared with the plain one, as showed by both methods used
