Abstract:

Patients with Legionnaires' disease excrete soluble serogroup-specific antigen into their urine. Urinary antigen tests to detect Legionnaires' disease were developed by several groups soon after the 1976 Philadelphia, PA, outbreak of Legionnaires' disease ( ) and then further refined by Kohler et al. and other groups ( ). The antigen being detected has never been extensively purified, but it is known that it is resistant to boiling, is trypsin resistant, has a molecular mass of approximately 10 kDa, and is most likely a lipopolysaccharide ( ).
