Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine if a relationship exists between antibody reactive with the Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans serotype b lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and severity of periodontal disease in generalized early-onset periodontitis (G-EOP). The concentration of antibody reactive with A. actinomycetemcomitans serotype b LPS was determined for 102 G-EOP subjects. Analysis of the relationship between antibody reactive with A. actinomycetemcomitans serotype b LPS and measures of periodontal attachment loss indicated that the patients with the highest concentrations of antibody reactive with A. actinomycetemcomitans serotype b LPS had significantly less attachment loss. These high-responder subjects also had anti-A. actinomycetemcomitans serotype b LPS with significantly higher relative avidity. The results suggest that antibody reactive with A. actinomycetemcomitans serotype b LPS is protective in G-EOP patients.
