10 PostB-27 cells AntiKlebsiella serum Bacterial Agglutination Results The results of bacterial agglutination tests using the motile, flagellate microorganism Enterobacter aerogenes are summarised in Fig. 1. 025). However, studies with the non-motile microorganism Klebsiella pneumoniae failed to show any significant bacterial agglutination, even with rabbit Klebsiella antiserum. Ankylosing spondylitis patients were examined for the presence of the three microorganisms detected in the pilot study with serum obtained from rabbit A, namely, Enterobacter aerogenes, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Yersinia enterocolitica.

Lymphocytoxicity experiments have demonstrated that rabbit antisera raised against Klebsiella pneumoniae have greater cytotoxic activity against HLA-B27 lymphocytes obtained from ankylosing spondylitis patients than for non-B27 lymphocytes obtained from healthy subjects. Although these observations are compatible with cross-reactivity between HLAB27 lymphocytes and some antigens present in several species of Gram-negative microorganisms, such as Klebsiella or Yersinia, the cross-reactive peptides involved need to be identified.
