Abstract

In this study we compared the ability of different immunoglobulin (Ig) preparations containing IgG, IgM, and/or IgA to neutralize the activity of streptococcal pyrogenic exotoxin A (SpeA) or culture supernatant from a clinical group A streptococcal isolate. All Ig preparations markedly inhibited the mitogenic and cytokine-inducing activity of SpeA and culture supernatant at concentrations of 0.05-0.5 mg/mL, and at 0.5 mg/mL, most caused 95-100% inhibition of both stimuli. A significantly higher (P ≤ .05) inhibition of SpeA was achieved by Pentaglobin (IgG, IgM, and IgA) and IgAbulin (IgA and IgG), as compared with pure IgG preparations. IgM- and IgA-enriched preparations had significantly higher inhibitory activity against SpeA than against culture supernatant, whereas the reverse was true for the IgG preparations (P ≤ .05). The data show that IgM and IgA are potent inhibitors of specific streptococcal superantigens. These findings may have implications for the optimization of immunotherapy in invasive streptococcal infections.
