An antigen preparation that when injected will elicit the expansion of one or more clones of responding lymphocytes so that immune protection is provided against a disease.
A preparation of a pathogenic micro-organism or virus, which has been killed or attenuated so as to lose its virulence but which carries antigens. When injected into a living animal the immune system is stimulated to produce antibodies to counteract the antigens. The antibodies remain in the living system thus providing immunity against any subsequent potentially pathogenic infection by the same organism....
