Eight strains of Salmonella belonging to sub-genus I, having antigenic formula, 47: z4 z23: - were identified at National Salmonella and Eschrichia Center, Central Research Institute, Kasauli, since its inception in 1958. Source and placewise analysis of these strains showed this serotype to be essentially a human pathogen causing diarrhoea and systemic infections. Out of these eight strains, 3 strains received in 1983 were sensitive to different antibiotics tested. Five strains received in 1989 were multi-drug resistant. None of these strains produced bacteriocines, hemolysins and aerobactin.
