Abstract:

The present study was conducted to determine the optimal vaccinal dose of PPR vaccine in camels. Three groups of camels were vaccinated by three different doses of the vaccine; 102 TCID50 of PPR viruses,103 TCID50 of PPR viruses and 105 TCID50 of PPR viruses respectively. The immune response was evaluated by SNT and competitive ELISA for the following 6 successive months post vaccination. The group vaccinated with the 102 TCID50 of PPR virus dose showed the lowest immune response while the other two groups which were vaccinated with 103 TCID50 of PPR virus dose and 105TCID50 of PPR virus dose showed mild to moderate immune response. The PPR vaccine was found to be safe where there are no clinical symptoms after vaccination. It is concluded that the optimal dose to vaccinate camel was 103 TCID50 of PPR viruses to protect the camel against infection with PPR virus.
