Table 1 Most prevalent PCR ribotypes in humans, animals and the environment isolated between 2008 and 2010

From: Clostridium difficile genotypes other than ribotype 078 that are prevalent among human, animal and environmental isolates

  1. PCR ribotypes marked with* have been found in animals only not between years 2008-10. §Results for PCR ribotypes 001 and 072 are combined in this table since they have a very similar banding pattern which is sometime difficult to distinguish using classical agarose gel-based electrophoresis. Ribotypes 078 and 126 are not among the most prevalent ribotypes and are added only for comparison. (CDT +) - binary toxin positive
