Abstract

Among 58 isoniazid-sensitive strains of from India, Burma and East Africa, 23 were of phage type A, 31 of type T (intermediate), 4 of type B and none of type C. Type I strains differed from type A strains in being attenuated in the guinea-pig, susceptible to HO, sensitive to thiophen-2-carboxylic acid hydrazide and resistant to thiacetazone and -aminosalicylic acid; the content of strongly acidic lipids and of sul-phatide lipids was low and the attenuation indicator lipid was present. The pattern of results with the type B strains did not correspond to the patterns for types A or I. Strains of type I appear to be a distinct group within the species
