Comparison of results generated by serotyping, pulsed-field restriction analysis, ribotyping, and repetitive-sequence PCR used to characterize penicillin-resistant pneumococci from the United States.

Abstract:

One hundred forty-seven isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae with high-level penicillin resistance collected during a national surveillance program in the United States were characterized by serotyping, pulsed-field restriction analysis, ribotyping, and repetitive-sequence (BOX element) PCR. The results generated by each method were compared by frequency of association to examine whether relationships existed between the various typing methods and statistically to determine association with t...
