Molecular Epidemiology of Neisseria meningitidis Serogroup B in Brazil.
PloS One. 2012 Jul 01; 7: e33016.
Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B has been predominant in Brazil, but no broadly effective vaccine is available to prevent endemic meningococcal disease. To understand genetic diversity among serogroup B strains in Brazil, we selected a nationally representative sample of clinical disease isolates from 2004, and a temporally representative sample for the state of São Paulo (1988-2006) for study (n?=?372).
