    The mode of T-cell response to Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans is largely unknown. The present study sought to investigate the hypothesis that A. actinomycetemcomitans expresses superantigens, capable of antigen-non-specific T- cell activation. To that end, peripheral blood mononuclear...

    Gram negative endocarditis is relatively rare in pediatrics but when they occur they are most frequently caused by one of the HACEK (Haemophilus species, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, C. hominis, Eikenella corrodens and Kingella kingae) group of microorganisms. Within the HACEK group of...
