The present study compares the molecular epidemiology of Streptococcus pneumoniae causing invasive disease and carriage, respectively, in one geographic area (Stockholm, Sweden) during a specific point in time (the year 1997). A total of 273 invasive isolates (257 from adults and 16 from children) obtained from the 2 major hospitals in Stockholm, as well as 246 nasopharyngeal isolates recovered from children attending 16 day-care centers in the Stockholm area, were analyzed by serotyping… CONTINUE READING
