    Article - En allemand

    Traduction en anglais : Molecular epidemiology of Neisseria gonorrhoeae: influence of sex and sexual preference on the distribution of gonococcal auxotype/serovar classes.

    Auxotype/serovar (A/S) classification enables precise characterisation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae.

    In the present study we evaluated whether sex and sexual preference of the patient influence the auxotype/serovar class of the infecting gonococcal strain.

    In male patients prototrophic/IB-3 was the most frequently isolated A/S class.

    By contrast, in female patients the A/S class (P)AH(U)/IA-1/2 was significantly (p < 0.005) more frequently isolated than in male patients.

    Analysis of our data according to sexual preference of the patients showed that in heterosexual patients the two mentioned A/S classes were leading, whereas in homo- and bisexual patients A/S classes prototrophic/IB-2 (p < 0.0001) and Pro/IB-2/16 (p < 0.0001) were isolated significantly more often.
