Analysis of cross infection using genomic fingerprinting in nosocomial urinary tract infection caused by Enterococcus faecalis.

Abstract

To evaluate cross infection and a possible outbreak of Enterococcus faecalis urinary tract infection (UTI) in our urology ward, we studied the DNA fingerprinting of E. faecalis strains isolated from nosocomial UTI patients, in the period 1982-1996, using arbitrarily primed polymerase chain reaction (AP-PCR) analysis. The serovar and amplified products of… (More)
