CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE
Streptococcus pyogenes is a gram-positive bacterium and is associated with many important diseases that result from the release of its toxin like: pharyngitis, sinusitis, pneumonia, septic scarlet fever and lymphangeitis. It can also cause diseases by the reaction of the immune system to it such as rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis. Streptolysin O, a haemolysin produced by streptococci, can cause an immune response and detection of antistreptolysin O (ASO) antibodies can be clinically used to confirm a recent infection. ASO antibodies can be detected 1– - 3 weeks after infection and they sustain at maximum levels for 3 - 6 weeks.
