Abstract

Surmmary

Three hundred and sixty-seven strains of pioneer streptococci isolated from the mouths of 40 healthy, full-term infants during the first month of life were examined by two taxonomic schemes that incorporated biochemical and physiological characteristics, IgA1 protease production and glycosidase activities. biovar 1 and comprised 55.0% of the pioneer streptococci isolated from neonates. constituted 25.3% of the isolates, while biovar 2, and accounted collectively for 11.4%. Difficulties in identifying streptococci were encountered and 8.4% of the 367 isolates could not be assigned to a recognised species.
