Salmonella antibodies

Salmonella antibodies, available from The Native Antigen Company, recognise Salmonella species. The bacterial genus Salmonella are rod-shaped, gram negative facultative anaerobic bacilli, that belong to the family Enterobacteriaceae. The genus is divided into two species groups, Salmonella enterica (S.enterica) and Salmonella bongori. S.enterica is further divided into six subspecies which includes S. enterica subspecies enterica. Salmonella Typhi is a serovar of this subspecies and is classified as Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi. Both S.Typhi and S.Paratyphi belong to the same subspecies and are generally referred to as Salmonella.

Infection caused by S.Typhi or S.Paratyphi is generally referred to as typhoid fever. The symptoms caused by S.Paratyphi infection are milder than disease caused by S.Typhi and include fever, headaches, nausea, loss of appetite, constipation, diarrhoea.  In a small percentage of cases, infected individuals may become chronic carriers of S.Paratyphi or S.Typhi after infection, and are responsible for spreading the disease in endemic regions.
