Long-term persistence of a discotheque-associated invasive Neisseria meningitidis group C strain as proven by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and porA gene sequencing
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
A duster of a Neisseria meningitidis serogroup C strain causing invasive disease was investigated. Five out of seven cases were associated with a particular discotheque. The strains were indistinguishable, as revealed by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and sequencing of variable regions of the porA gene, but caused strikingly different clinical presentations during 5 months.
