Abstract

A new molecular subtyping approach was developed which is based on the amplification and sequencing of a repetitive region of the P1 gene of Mycoplasma pneumoniae. It allows the differentiation of all known subtypes and variants of M. pneumoniae as well as the identification of new subtypes directly in clinical samples to characterize endemic and epidemic M. pneumoniae infections.
