Three pups 2-4 months old were vaccinated subcutaneously with the modified live canine parvovirus, CPV-2b/29-97 strain. During an observation period of two weeks pups remained clinically health, exhibiting a vigorous post-vaccinal active serological response (haemoagglutinating inhibiting antibody titers for CPV-2 ranging from 1:2560 to 1:5120 at 21 days post inoculation). Phagocytosis and killing of Candida albicans exerted by polymorphonuclear cells and monocytes did not undergo significant modifications 3-6 days post vaccination up to 30 days. Antibacterial activity mediated by peripheral blood lymphocytes (Salmonella typhi was used as a target) was slightly, but not significantly decreased 3 days post vaccination. Conclusively, in pups the CPV type 2b vaccine seems to be safe as far as natural immune responses are concerned, while its immunogenicity is preserved.

Abstract

Three pups 2-4 months old were vaccinated subcutaneously with the modified live canine parvovirus, CPV-2b/29-97 strain. During an observation period of two weeks pups remained clinically health, exhibiting a vigorous post-vaccinal active serological response (haemoagglutinating inhibiting antibody titers for CPV-2 ranging from 1:2560 to 1:5120 at 21 days post inoculation). Phagocytosis and killing of Candida albicans exerted by polymorphonuclear cells and monocytes did not undergo significant modifications 3-6 days post vaccination up to 30 days. Antibacterial activity mediated by peripheral blood lymphocytes (Salmonella typhi was used as a target) was slightly, but not significantly decreased 3 days post vaccination. Conclusively, in pups the CPV type 2b vaccine seems to be safe as far as natural immune responses are concerned, while its immunogenicity is preserved.
