  1. Asymptomatic carriage of Neisseria meningitidis in a randomly sampled population.

    Article - En anglais

    To estimate the extent of meningococcal carriage in the Norwegian population and to investigate the relationship of several characteristics of the population to the carrier state, 1,500 individuals living in rural and small-town areas near Oslo were selected at random from the Norwegian National Population Registry.

    These persons were asked to complete a questionnaire and to volunteer for a bacteriological tonsillopharyngeal swab sampling.

    Sixty-three percent of the selected persons participated in the survey.

    Ninety-one (9.6%) of the volunteers harbored Neisseria meningitidis.

    The isolates were serogrouped, serotyped, tested for antibiotic resistance, and analyzed by multilocus enzyme electrophoresis.
