Abstract

Pneumococcal colonization is rarely studied in adults, except as part of family surveys. We report the outcomes of colonization screening in healthy adults (non-smokers without major comorbidities or contact with children under five years) who had volunteered to take part in clinical research. Using nasal wash culture, we detected colonization in 6.5% (52/795) of volunteers. Serotype 3 was the commonest serotype (10/52). The majority of the remainder (35/52) were non-vaccine serotypes, but we also identified persistent circulation of serotypes 19A and 19F. Resistance to at least one of six antibiotics tested was found in 8/52 isolates.
