Resumen: This work evaluated the ability of human anti-lipopolysaccharide O6 IgM and IgG antibodies to protect mice challenged with Escherichia coli serotype O6 : K2ac. Purified IgM-effluent, purified IgG, pools of normal human serum (NHS), or control group were injected into mice 18 h before challenges with O6 E. coli. Interleukin 6 and tumor necrosis factor alpha were quantified in the sera of test and control groups. All mice receiving purified IgM-effluent (66.6 mg L(-1) of antilipopolysaccharide O6 IgM antibodies) and NHS survived. Purified IgG (1.1 mg L(-1) of anti-lipopolysaccharide O6 IgG antibodies) protected 87.5% of the animals. The control group showed no protective ability. The minimal concentration of anti-lipopolysaccharide O6 IgM antibodies, able to protect 50% of the animals was 33.3 mg L(-1) of purified IgM-effluent, whereas purified IgG was able to protect 50% of the animals with only 1.1 mg L(-1) of anti-lipopolysaccharide O6 IgG antibodies. Serum from animals pretreated with purified IgM-effluent and purified IgG before challenges with lipopolysaccharide O6 did not have detectable pro-inflammatory cytokines. Hepatocytes of the control group were completely invaded by bacteria, whereas none was found in animals pretreated with purified IgM-effluent and purified IgG. Higher concentrations of anti-lipopolysaccharide O6 IgM antibodies as compared to anti-lipopolysaccharide O6 IgG antibodies were needed to protect mice from challenges with E. coli O6 serotype.
