Recombinant vaccine for diseases caused by encapsulated organisms

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #6326001.

Vaccines for diseases caused by normally encapsulated organisms are produced by genetically modifying those organisms by deleting the genes encoding for capsule synthesis or a portion thereof sufficient to produce non-capsulated mutants of the organisms. As an example, a live, attenuated strain of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae genetically modified with a large deletion in a chromosomal regions of the DNA which encodes for capsule synthesis is a safe and effective vaccine against swine pleuropneumonia.
