Streptococcus pneumoniae antibodies
Streptococcus pneumoniae antibodies recognise S. pneumoniae, a lancet-shaped, gram-positive, facultative anaerobic bacterium.
In humans, S. pneumoniae primarily colonizes the nasopharynx and transmission occurs from person-to-person via respiratory secretions from patients infected with S. pneumoniae, and from healthy carriers. In susceptible individuals, the bacteria can spread to the lower respiratory tract, the inner ear or sinuses causing different types of illness referred to as pneumococcal disease.
Worldwide, S. pneumoniae is the major cause of pneumonia, sepsis, and meningitis and is the leading cause of community acquired pneumonia in young children and the elderly.
