Abstract

We have isolated plasma cell hybridomas which secrete monoclonal antibodies directed against Haemophilus ducreyi. Two of these monoclonal antibodies recognize all strains of H. ducreyi tested to date and are capable of detecting the presence of H. ducreyi in skin lesions produced by this pathogen in experimental animals. These monoclonal antibodies which react with apparently all strains of H. ducreyi have the potential to be developed into a rapid immunodiagnostic test for chancroid.
