ABSTRACT Study of the epidemiology of invasive infections caused by encapsulated Haemophilus influenzae has been complicated by the poor sensitivity and specificity of the serologic assays used to identify specific capsular polysaccharides. The population structure of these bacteria is highly clonal, however, and serotype is highly correlated with other genetic characteristics. We sought to determine if alleles of the highly conserved phosphoglucose isomerase (pgi) gene correspond to the… Expand
