Mechanisms of immunity to rickettsia and implications for vaccine development

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Immunity to spotted fever group Rickettsiae following primary infection prevents reinfection as judged by the absence of documented second infections after recovery. Studies of the mechanisms of immunity to spotted fever group Rickettsiae have been performed to inform us of the immune effectors that may be required to mediate protection by a vaccine.
