Human immune response against outer membrane proteins of Moraxella (Branhamella) catarrhalis determined by immunoblotting and enzyme immunoassay.


The role of Moraxella (Branhamella) catarrhalis as a respiratory tract pathogen is increasingly recognized. We looked at the human immune response against individual outer membrane proteins of M. catarrhalis and against the 81-kDa CopB protein, which has previously been shown to be a target for protective antibodies. Paired serum samples from six elderly… (More)
