Abstract To determine the prevalence of capsular polysaccharide (CP) types of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from bovine mastitic milk in Korea, the protective effect of the conjugates, composed of microencapsulated S. aureus clinical isolate type 8 CP bound to Pseudomonas aeruginosa exotoxin A (ETA) was evaluated in mice. Of 107 S. aureus isolates, serotype 5 and 8 accounted for only 26 or 24.2\%. When serotype 336 antiserum was employed, fifty of the remaining 81 isolates were typed as 336, 26 reacted with two serotypes, and 5 were nontypeable. Mice challenged with the same strain used for immunization had fewer S. aureus cells in their kidneys than mice challenged with the heterologous strain. But the magnitudes of difference on bacterial clearance were similar in both groups, indicating that the significance of this result remains to be determined. Mice immunized with the conjugate elicited an antibody response 3 days post injection, which persisted for 13 days of the observation period after second injection in some mice. The mice immunized with the CP8-ETA conjugates developed antibodies significantly higher than those immunized with CP-Freund's adjuvant or PBS. In in vivo bacterial challenge experiment, the survival rate of mice immunized with CPS-ETA conjugate was significantly higher than that of mice immunized with PBS. It was suggested that CP8-ETA vaccine had a potential to protect mice against experimental S. aureus bacteremia.
