When a sufferer is contaminated by way of Klebsiella bacteria, his or her immune approach will make antibodies opposed to the entire antigens or molecules present in the microbe. simply because the various bacterial antigens resemble self tissues, the anti-bacterial antibodies will assault not just the micro organism but additionally the self tissues equivalent to the joints and the cells having a similar HLA molecules, that is how the affliction AS begins. this is often the concept that of molecular similarity or “molecular mimicry” which formerly has been came upon to paintings in different autoimmune ailments; rheumatic fever and rheumatoid arthritis.

The first paper in this topic used to be released in 1976 and because thenover a hundred papers on rheumatological subject matters were released, from Prof Ebringer’s workforce, on the department of lifestyles Sciences, King’s collage in London, united kingdom.

The appropriate details from those papers is extracted and awarded during this publication layout making it available to overall healthiness execs, study associations, pharmaceutical businesses and universities and most people.

In haemagglutination studies, the rabbit HLA-B27 lymphocyte antisera raised with Freund’s complete adjuvant have been shown to agglutinate, up to a titre of 1/512, sheep and rabbit red cells coated with Klebsiella extracts prepared by several different methods. Other rabbit antisera, also raised with Freund’s complete adjuvant against a variety of protein antigens, viruses and microorganisms including Salmonella typhimurium and Escherichia coli, did not exceed a haemagglutination titre of 1/16 when tested with Klebsiella LPS-coated sheep red blood cells.
