Two pregnant cows were immunized with a cell wall factor of Staphylococcus aureus and were challenged during subsequent lactation with both endotoxin and later with homologous S. aureus. Compared with control animals, the response to both endotoxin and S. aureus was delayed and the severity of the clinical response was markedly reduced. Inflammation was monitored by changes in antitrypsin and NAG‐ase. The mechanism of this protective effect remains obscure.
