Abstract

This invention reports the discovery of serum IgG of different individuals that block antibody (Ab) activity targeted against Neisseria membrane lipoprotein H.8. Blocking Ab activity may predispose such individuals to developing invasive disease with N. meningtitidis or decrease the efficacy of vaccines. This finding can explain the variability between individual susceptibility and provide new avenue for treatment and increasing efficacy of existing treatments.
