BACKGROUND Salmonella enterica includes the major serovars associated with human salmonellosis. In this study, 1764 clinical Salmonella enterica isolates from diarrhea outpatients were collected from fifteen cities in Guangdong province, China, between 2007 and 2012. These isolates represent all of the Salmonella isolates collected from the province during that period. METHODS The isolates were characterized by serovar determination, antimicrobial susceptibility tests and PFGE fingerprint… CONTINUE READING
