Abstract The serological response towards Staphylococcus saprophyticus in young women with symptomatic urinary tract infection was measured with an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and a direct agglutination (DA) test. In both assays a marked antibody response was found in 2 of 3 patients with acute pyelonephritis caused by S. saprophyticus. Patients with acute cystitis due to S. saprophyticus or Escherichia coli showed antibody titers comparable to those of healthy controls.
