By using the computer-assisted Dendron system to analyze the patterns of Southern blots probed with the repetitive sequence Ca3, we have compared oral isolates of Candida spp. from a group of 11 nonhospitalized patients with AIDS suffering from recurrent episodes of oral thrush in Leicester, England, with oral isolates from a group of control individuals. Genetic diversity among the AIDS strains was significantly reduced compared with that of control strains. In addition, the same strains… CONTINUE READING
