Traduction en anglais : Molecular epidemiology of Neisseria gonorrhoeae: typing using the combined auxotype/serovar classification.
Auxotyping or determination of serovars of N. gonorrhoeae used separately can be for a limited differentiation of strains only.
Combined auxotype/serovar (A/S)-classification was examined for its discriminatory ability on 360 gonococcal strains isolated over 9 years in the area of Heidelberg.
The prototrophic, prolin requiring and (P)AH(U)-auxotype were the 3 most frequent auxotypes. 33 different serovars were identified.
Protein-IB-serovars dominated by 75%. IB-3, IB-2 and IA-1/2 were the most frequent serovars.
The (P)AH(U) auxotype is statistically significant associated with serovar IA-1/2, the PA(U) auxotype with serovar IB-2/16 and the prolin requiring auxotype with serovar IB-1.
Combined typing resulted in 68 different A/S classes.
