Safety and antigenicity of a purified preparation of Salmonella typhosa Vi antigen was evaluated in human volunteers. Dosages of Vi antigen at 25, 50, and 100 μg were less toxic than U.S. standard typhoid vaccine (lot 6A) containing 5 x 108 bacteria oer dosage. Vi antigen in comparison with the standard typhoid vaccine induced higher hemagglutinating antibody but lower bactericidal antibody responses.
