The mouse and rabbit intradermal injection models have been used to define factors that may be important in Haemophilus ducreyi pathogenesis. We used H. ducreyi strains with diverse geographic origins and phenotypic characteristics to evaluate the experimental models. Injection of live and heat-killed bacteria caused skin abscesses in both models.(More)
Identification of antigenically conserved surface components of Haemophilus ducreyi may facilitate the development of reagents to diagnose and prevent chancroid. A hybridoma derived from a mouse immunized with nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae produced a monoclonal antibody (MAb), designated 3B9, that bound to 35 of 35 H. ducreyi strains isolated from(More)
Tumor endothelial marker 8 (TEM8) is a cell surface receptor that is highly expressed in a variety of human tumors and promotes tumor angiogenesis and cell growth. Antibodies targeting TEM8 block tumor angiogenesis in a manner distinct from the VEGF receptor pathway. Development of a TEM8 imaging agent could aid in patient selection for specific(More)
Haemophilus ducreyi contains a major outer membrane protein (MOMP) whose apparent molecular weight is 39,000 to 42,000 for all strains tested. Two monoclonal antibodies (MAbs), designated 9D12 and 2C7, bound to the MOMP for all strains of H. ducreyi tested. As reported previously, MAb 9D12 was H. ducreyi specific (E. J. Hansen and T. A. Loftus, Infect.(More)
