Lysogeny of Streptococcus Pyogenes and Transduction of Drug Resistance to Tetracycline, Chloramphenicol and Macrolides Antibiotics with Phages Induced from Them
It has been noticed a wider distribution of tetracycline(TC) resistant Streptococcus pyogenes throughout Japan and the emergence of chloramphenicol(CM) resistant strains. Since 1968 type T-12 strains made up the greater number and macrolides resistant strains were first noticed in 1972.
