Reagents, Serology, Bacteria, Streptococcus A, Antibody, Pyogen Toxin
Definition : Serology reagents intended to detect antibodies to exotoxins produced by several antigenically distinct types of Streptococcus group A (typically Streptococcus pyogenes), spherical bacteria of the family Streptococcaceae. S. pyogenes is one of the most important bacterial human pathogens, causing a wide range of suppurative diseases (e.g., pharyngitis, otitis media, sinusitis, endocarditis) and nonsuppurative sequelae (e.g., acute rheumatic fever). These antibodies are associated with some rheumatic autoimmune diseases.
