Epidemiological investigations on vi negative strains of salmonella typhi isolated from bangalore and kurnool in southern india


, : Epidemiological investigations on vi negative strains of salmonella typhi isolated from bangalore and kurnool in southern india. Indian Journal of Medical Research 73(JUNE): 832-835

Three batches of S. typhi strains subjected to a complementary phage typing scheme. The scheme was useful for the identification of Vi-phage types of Vi-negative strains isolated at Bangalore and Kurnool. A Vi-negative strain, identified as phage type JI by the complementary phage typing scheme, was found to be connected to an outbreak [in humans] caused by the same phage type. The nonmotile, Vi-negative strains from Kurnool, provisionally identified as S. typhi, were typed by the scheme as subtype Chamblee, phage type A of S. typhi. The epidemiological correlation between Vi-negative strains and the Vi-phage types of S. typhi was discussed.
