  1. a Ten mice per group were immunized with 5 μg Bm86 (except the controls) adjuvated as indicated. Antibody levels were expressed as the absorbance at 280 nm of the pooled serum samples at day 40 (Garcia - Garcia et al., 1995). b Within the parentheses the percent of the total IgG that corresponds to the subclass.
