[Origin and frequency of the serotypes of Salmonella isolated in France and received in the French National Center during the years 1977-1979 (author's transl)].

[Article in French]


The sources of 43,359 Salmonella strains isolated in continental France from 1977 to 1979 (inclusive) are given for every serotype listed in alphabetical order in each 0 group of Kauffmann-White schema. Isolation of S. Arizonae 18:z4,z32:- is more and more frequent from poultry. However, this serotype was not isolated from mammals. S. hadar and S. saint-paul are now quite frequently isolated from poultry and humans. S. gold-coast -- a man-associated serotype -- had an increasing incidence since 1978. The incidence of S. agona increased since 1975. S. kedougou (never encountered in France before 1975) was frequently isolated from humans in 1978. This serotype seems to have secondarily contaminated animals and the environment. S. wien, which was quite frequent in the period 1971-1975, has almost disappeared since. The incidence of S. panama was high in the period 1961-1971, then lower in 1972-1974. In 1978-1979 the incidence of S. panama rose dramatically. The incidence of other Salmonella serotypes seems unchanged.
