Evolution of clonal and susceptibility profiles of serotype 19A Streptococcus pneumoniae among invasive isolates from children in Spain, 1990 to 2008.


The genetic structure and antibiotic nonsusceptibility of all serotype 19A Streptococcus pneumoniae pediatric pneumococcal isolates received at the Spanish Pneumococcal Reference Laboratory (1990 to 2008) were analyzed. Of them, 410 (79.8%) isolates belonged to 14 sequence types (STs) with >10 isolates each, and 104 to 73 STs (with 21 new STs, ST5141 to… (More)
