From the 22 ABD patients, 7 (32%) were MALP-404-positive; among them 3 patients (14%) with strong antibody signals indicating a previous or currently active infection with M. fermentans (Fig. 1). In contrast, MALP-404 antibodies were not detected in any of the 14 matched controls examined (odds ratios > 6.07 and 2.05, respectively; p<0.05). Four of the 7 MALP-404-positive patients (57%) but also 9 of the 15 MALP-404-negative patients (60%) were HLA-B5l-positive (odds ratio = 0.89, ns). The presence of the MALP-404 antigen did not correlate with any demographic feature, the clinical signs or the prognostic factors of the disease (ns).

Figure I. Western blot of selected sera from patients with Adamantiades-Behpet's disease (ABD). Mycoplasma lipoprotein antigens were enriched by cold octyl glucoside extraction of a Mycoplasma fermentans strain isolated from the knee joint of a rheumatoid arthritis patient1. The antigen mixture was separated on SDS-PAGE and electroblotted to a PVDF membrane. Lanes 1-4: sera from ABD patients; lane 5: monoclonal antibodies against the indicated lipoproteins (positive control); lane 6: molecular weight markers. Note typical positive reaction to MALP-404 in lane 2, and strong reaction with an unidentified M. fermentans antigen in lane 1.
