Bartonella henselae is now regarded as the etiologic agent of cat-scratch disease and a cause of bacillary angiomatosis. We examined the human immune response to Bartonella henselae infection using a newly developed enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and a Western blot procedure using outer-membrane proteins. The EIA showed 98.6% and 91.4% agreement with an indirect fluorescence method (IFA) for detection of IgM and IgG antibodies, respectively. By using Western blot analysis, reactivity to an 8-kd band… CONTINUE READING
