Abstract Antibodies to the anti-oxidative peroxiredoxin (Prx) enzymes occur in both systemic autoimmune disease and vasculitis in adulthood. Because increased oxidative stress induces vasculitis in Kawasaki disease (KD), autoimmunity to Prxs in patients with KD was investigated. The presence of antibodies to Prx 1, 2 and 4 was analyzed by ELISA and Western blot. Of 30 patients with KD, 13 (43.3\%) possessed antibodies to Prx 2, whereas these antibodies were present in only 1 of 10 patients (10.0\%) with sepsis (4 with purulent meningitis and 6 with septicemia). In contrast, antibodies to Prx 1 and 4 were not detected in either group. There was no significant correlation among the titers of the three antibodies. Clinical parameters were compared between anti-Prx 2-positive and -negative patients. The presence of anti-Prx 2 antibodies correlated with a longer period of fever and poor response to high-dose γ-globulin therapy in patients with KD. Anti-Prx 2-positive patients had significantly greater excretion of urinary 8-isoprostaglandin than did anti-Prx 2-negative patients. These results provide the first evidence for an antibody to Prx 2 in patients with KD. They also suggest that this antibody might serve as a marker of disease severity and be involved in the pathophysiology of vasculitis in some patients with KD. © 2012 The Societies and Blackwell Publishing Asia Pty Ltd.
