Abstract

The relative avidity of serum immunoglobulin G antibody for the fimbria antigen of Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans was assessed by diethylamine dissociation enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in patients with adult periodontitis. High-titer sera from patients not harboring A. actinomycetemcomitans had significantly higher avidities for the fimbria antigen than did high-titer sera from patients with A. actinomycetemcomitans in their periodontal pockets. The elicited antibodies against the fimbria antigen may afford protection against A. actinomycetemcomitans infection.
