Phenotypical changes occur in the surface of Pseudomonas aeruginosa during the chronic lung infection of cystic fibrosis patients. It is difficult with the classical typing methods, such as serotyping, phage typing and pyocin typing, to decide if a patient has been colonized with a new strain or whether it is the same strain which has reappeared, for instance after chemotherapy in the lungs. This investigation was carried out to evaluate genome fingerprinting as a typing method and to see how… CONTINUE READING
