The objective of this study was to investigate the sequence diversity in a single country of a family of integrative and conjugative elements (ICEs) that are vectors of antibiotic resistance in Haemophilus influenzae and Haemophilus parainfluenzae, and test the hypothesis that they emerged from a single lineage. Sixty subjects aged 9 months - 13 years were recruited and oropharyngeal samples cultured. Up to 10 morphologically distinct Pasteurellaceae spp. were purified, and then the species… CONTINUE READING
