[Comparative immunochemical characteristics of extracellular polysaccharide-containing preparations and teichoic acids of Staphylococcus aureus].

Abstract

The sensitivity of the enzyme immunoassay on the basis of polysaccharide-containing preparations was found to be lower than that of the assay on the basis of teichoic acids. The specificity of both assays was 100%. There was no complete coincidence between the results of the detection of antibodies to these two antigens in patients' sera.
