Reagents, Serology, Bacteria, Streptococcus Species, Antibody, Streptolysin O
Definition : Serology reagents intended to detect antibodies to deoxyribonuclease streptolysin O, an antigenic hemolysin produced mostly by group A streptococci but also by some group C and G streptococci. These antibodies develop in response to or as the result of a preceding streptococcal infection and are associated with some autoimmune diseases such as acute rheumatic fever, Tourette's syndrome, and post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis.
