The elucidation of novel capsular genotypes of Haemophilus influenzae type b with the polymerase chain reaction.

Abstract:

Molecular characterization is an important pre-requisite for post-vaccine studies of Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib). Three capsular genotyping patterns, b(S), b(G) and b(V), have been described in the major phylogenetic lineage of Hib. However, in a recent series of prospective studies, three new hybridisation patterns were observed among 425 strains of Hib. Four pairs of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primers were used to identify the capsular gene (cap) structure of these Hib strains....
