Abstract : Acute respiratory disease associated with adenovirus type 4 occurred in recruits vaccinated with low titered living adenovirus type 4 vaccine (LAV). Only 29% of the vaccinees had neutralizing antibodies two months postvaccination. Upon revaccination with higher titered LAV, there was an 86% response in men vaccinated for the first time but only a 47% response in men who were revaccinated. (Author)
