Abstract

Four mouse monoclonal antibodies reacting with Coxiella burnetii lipopolysaccharide antigens were produced and used in serotyping 17 C. burnetii isolates from acute Q fever and Q fever endocarditis patients in France. Two monoclonal antibodies (1B2 and 3B6) were considered specific for the Priscilla strain, a representative of Q fever endocarditis isolates, and did not react with the Nine Mile strain, which is representative of acute Q fever isolates. Monoclonal antibodies Nos. 1B2 and 3B6 reacted with 75% ( 3 4) acute Q fever isolates and 85% ( 11 13) of endocarditis isolates from France. It is reasonable to conclude that Priscilla-like strains cause both acute Q fever and Q fever endocarditis. The hypothesis that Priscilla-like strains only are associated with Q fever endocarditis should be reconsidered.
