Inhibitory effect of human natural yeast killer toxin-like antibodies (KTAb) on the attachment of rat-derived P. carinii to WI38 VA13 cells

Before the attachment assay, the parasites were preincubated in different reagents: DMEM, pH 7.2 (1); KTAb immunopurified from patient A (2); KTAb immunopurified from patient B (3); KTAb-depleted vaginal secretions (4); and KTAb (from patient B) neutralized by MAbKT4 (5). *p < 0.001, the parasite number compared with that of parasites preincubated in KTAb-depleted vaginal secretions.
