- B. henselae Houston-1 (in US;16S type I; MST-2) is used worldwide for the serodiagnosis of CSD by IFA
- B. henselae from domestic cats in Japan belong to YH-01(in Japan; 16S type I and MST-1).
- The antigenic difference distinguished by the MST is an important determinant of the accuracy of IFA.
- We need to use a country-specific B. henselae strain in the development of IFAs to enable the accurate diagnosis of CSD in Japan.
Bartonella henselae strains genetically differ among nations. The utility of Japanese-specific YH-01 strain was investigated in developing indirect fluorescence antibody assay (IFA) for IgM in comparison with conventional IFA employing Houston-1 strain by testing 100 Japanese patients suspected of cat scratch disease. The country-specific IFA greatly improved the accuracy of diagnosis.
