Three hundred and one (301) strains of Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B, isolated from patients with meningococcal disease during the years 1994–1996, were subjected to multilocus enzyme electrophoresis, serotyping, and serosubtyping. Based on the analyses of 14 enzyme loci, 177 electrophoretic types (ETs) were identified. Of these, 136 were represented by single isolates and 41 were represented by multiple isolates (range 2–31). The mean genetic diversity for isolates was 0.444 and for ETs… CONTINUE READING
