Abstract

During the period of 1976-88, 733 strains of Pasteurella multocida isolated from avian hosts were submitted to the National Animal Disease Center for somatic serotyping. The serotypes were determined and are presented in a summarized form in this report. The most common serotypes were 3 (29%); 1 (18%); 3,4 (12%); and 3,4,12 (9%). The 733 strains had been isolated from 25 species of avian hosts; 400 (55%) were from turkeys. The most common serotypes of strains from turkeys were 3 (38%); 3,4 (18%); 3,4,12 (11%); and 4 (4%). /// Durante el período comprendido entre 1976 y 1988, 733 cepas de Pasteurella multocida aisladas de huéspedes aviares fueron enviadas al Centro Nacional de Enfermedades Animales (National Animal Disease Center) para su serotipificación somática. Los serotipos fueron determinados y en este reporte se presenta un resumen de los resultados. Los serotipos más comunes fueron el 3 (29%); el 1 (18%); el 3,4 (12%); y el 3,4,12 (9%). Las 733 cepas se aislaron de 25 especies aviares; 400 (55%) eran de pavos. Los serotipos más comunes entre las cepas de pavos fueron el 3 (38%); 3,4 (18%); 3,4,12 (11%), y el 4 (4%).
