We report double-determinant sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay measurements (4) of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) binding protein (LBP) in children with uncomplicated Escherichia coli O157:H7 hemorrhagic colitis (HC) and those with O157:H7-associated hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). Characteristics of these children have been previously reported (5). The analytical sensitivity of LBP measurement was 1 ng/ ml, and assay precision was 14%. Figure 1 shows that elevated levels of LBP in plasma… CONTINUE READING
