Abstract

The levels of antilipopolysaccharide (anti-LPS) antibodies in patients colonized with an endemic Acinetobacter strain were compared to those in patients with bloodstream infections. Seropositivity and seronegativity correlated with positive and negative blood cultures, respectively, indicating that determination of the level of anti-LPS antibodies is useful for diagnosing Acinetobacter infections.
