  1. The epidemiology of listeriosis in the United States-1986.

    Article - En anglais

    To determine the morbidity and mortality due to listeriosis in the United States, the authors undertook an active surveillance project in 1986 to identify all cases in which Listeria monocytogenes was isolated from cultures of ordinarily sterile sites in a population of 34 million persons.

    The authors estimated that at least 1,700 cases of listeriosis and 450 deaths occurred in the United States in 1986; 27% of these cases occurred in pregnant women, with 22% of perinatal cases resulting in stillbirths or neonatal deaths.

    Mutilocus electrophoretic enzyme typing was useful for elucidating the molecular epidemiology of L. monocytogenes; perinatal listeriosis was significantly associated with one group of related strains.
