Antibiotic susceptibility patterns and serotypes of 397 Streptococcus pneumoniae recovered from 1994 to 1998 in Italy have been determined. This collection included 229 penicillin- and/or erythromycin-resistant strains and 168 isolates responsible for invasive infections. Among penicillin-resistant pneumococci, the most prevalent serotype was 23F, followed by 19F and 9V, while among erythromycin-resistant but penicillin-susceptible strains serotype 6B was predominant followed by 19A, 14, 19F… CONTINUE READING
