Agogo Agogo 1986
The strain was isolated from the urine of a jaundiced boy of 12 years old admitted to the Agogo Presbyterian Hospital, Ghana. (Hogerzeil et al., 1986). The paper mentions that the strain was typed in the RL in Amsterdam and considered to be a new serovar closely related to sentot, serogroup Djasiman. The serovar name agogo, with reference strain Agogo is proposed.
As the serovar was not published at the time of the TSC meeting in Manchester (1986) but known to be typed as a separate serovar by a RL, it was placed in the Annex of the Revised List of 1988. Since then it has been published and is therefore now removed from the Annex to the main list. Since no typing results are given in Hogerzeil's paper, it is marked by i.t. in the attached updated list.
i.t. Strains published without typing results or with incomplete typing results (i.t. means incomplete typing).
