Abstract

SUMMARY

Stools from 518 patients, suspected of having cholera, were examined. From 174 of these patients biotype , serotype “Inaba” was isolated. All 174 were resistant to Mukerjee’s group-IV phage and to polymyxin B and colistin. They all agglutinated chicken RBC. Only 10 strains were positive by the tube haemolysis test with sheep RBC, but 172 were positive by the plate method. One hundred and twenty of the strains belonged to Mukerjee’s phage-type IV and 53 to phage-type V; one strain was untypable. It is suggested that these strains may have originated from more than one source.
