Outer membrane protein subtypes of Haemophilus influenzae type b isolates causing invasive disease in Victoria, Australia, from 1988 to 1990.


Journal Article

Outer membrane protein subtyping of 187 isolates of Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), isolated from children with invasive Hib disease in Victoria, Australia, showed that a single outer membrane protein subtype (1VA) was responsible for 83% of the infections. It was identical to that responsible for the majority of cases of invasive Hib disease in Europe.
