Abstract

The serological diagnosis of melioidosis is carried out using the indirect hemagglutination assay. We looked at the reactivity of sera from culture-proven cases of melioidosis from north Queensland against antigens derived from Burkholderia pseudomallei, B. thailandensis, and B. cepacia. Cross-reactivity between sera from culture-positive cases of melioidosis and B. thailandensis was demonstrated.
