Laboratories in England and Wales routinely submit isolates of C.
In contrast, all strains were [ILLEGIBLE TEXT] in the disk diffusion test (inhibition zone diameter 10 mm to 11 mm); their MICs doxycycline, and minocycline were 64 [micro]/ml, 16 [micro]/ml, and 16 [micro]/ml, [ILLEGIBLE TEXT] isolated tetracycline resistance was typical for the isolates from Swiss injecting [ILLEGIBLE TEXT] tetracycline resistance in nontoxigenic C.
ulcerans is reported to be substantially lower than that usually seen in toxigenic C.
In the report by Zasada (4), all 3 recommended methods (PFGE, MLST, and ribotyping) were used to genotype 25 nontoxigenic C.
Previous reports revealed that isolation rates of C.
Epidemiologic data analysis revealed that predisposing factors of nontoxigenic C.
Data on clinically confirmed cases and toxigenic isolates of C.
Culture of an otic swab collected from the cat in May 2007 yielded 4 organisms: C.
To the Editor: Toxigenic Corynebacterium ulcerans may cause a zoonotic infection similar to diphtheria caused by C.
Case-patients undergo a smear examination of the characteristic patch of thick gray membrane and samples are cultured for C.
As in the United Kingdom, all cases of diphtheria reported since 1997 were caused by C.
The 12- year-old was initially treated as a contact with 7 days of erythromycin; this treatment was extended to 14 days when the laboratory confirmed C.
ulcerans produce potent diphtheria toxin and may cause severe symptoms similar to those caused by C.
This resurgence was associated with a change in the biotype of the circulating C.
Given that ribotyping still takes several days to be completed, we evaluated the role RAPD might have as a rapid and reliable molecular subtyping tool by comparing its differentiation abilities to those of ribotyping; 199 C.
