I am thinking the pathogenesis factor (capsule) of Pseudomonas aeruginose as an example:

antiphagocytosis $\to$ anti antibodies (I think AB is antibodies) and complement; anbiotics (aminoglycosides)

This means that capsule leads to inhibition of antibodies and complement. Capsule also inhibits aminoglycosides in pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Does capsule generally lead to anti antibodies (I think) and anti Complement with any bacteria? I am thinking this because I want to understand if the capsule can lead alone to these anti effects with Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

You need to define your terms and notation. What are all of these terms (antiphagocytosis, AB, a/b, C')? Can you provide some context? –  A. Kennard Mar 1 at 12:39
I think AB is antibodies. C' is natural complement. a/b antibiotics. –  Masi Mar 1 at 15:20
