THE COLICINE TYPING OF COLIFORM BACILLI IN THE STUDY OF CROSS-INFECTION IN UROLOGY

By K. B. Linton

Abstract

Three hundred and fourteen strains of coliform bacilli (79 Klebsiella and 235 E. coli), mostly isolated from urine, were investigated for their production of, or sensitivity to, certain colicines. Only one Klebsiella strain showed colicine activity, but in 204 of the E. coli strains colicine production or sensitivity was demonstrated. Colicine typing was of considerable value in epidemiological investigations of post-operative urinary infections due to E. coli
