Molecular typing and serotyping were compared for 150 Chlamydia trachomatis strains isolated from genital sources, belonging to 10 different serovars. Because of the general agreement of the two methods, molecular omp1 genotyping was applied to the epidemiological study of C. trachomatis isolates from genital infections in Bordeaux (France), during a 29-month period. The most prevalent omp1 genotypes were E (51.7%), F (17.3%), D (8.8%), and G (8.4%). Restriction enzyme analysis allowed… CONTINUE READING
