[The drug resistance and DNA plasmid profiles of Shigella dysenteriae 1 in the USSR and abroad].

The medicinal resistance and plasmid profiles of 62 S. dysenteriae strains 1, isolated in the USSR in 1986-1988 from Soviet and foreign citizens (from Afghanistan, Vietnam) and 8 strains obtained from India in 1987 were studied. Pronounced similarity between the phenotypes of medicinal, including conjugative, resistance in the strains of Soviet and foreign… CONTINUE READING
