Abstract

Clostridium perfringens strains were isolated from swine diarrhea in Korea. Three out of nineteen (15.8%) isolates of C. perfringens were found to be enterotoxigenic by PCR analysis. PCR-based genotyping of the three enterotoxigenic isolates of C. perfringens revealed that they were types A, C and D, respectively. These results suggest that various types of enterotoxigenic C. perfringens can cause swine diarrhea, and that the presence of enterotoxigenic type A strain, known to be strongly associated with food poisoning, may cause public health problem in Korea.
