Abstract:

While the number of species described greatly exceeds the number of human pathogens, eight species affecting humans currently included in this genus are , , , , , , , and . , , and were formerly included in the genus but have recently been reclassified into the genus (formerly ) based on molecular taxonomy. In the absence of the recently reclassified species, significant genetic diversity still exists in the genus. may be found as part of the commensal bacterial flora of the mucosal surfaces of the upper respiratory tracts (URT) of many healthy individuals. Several molecular methods, including 16S rRNA gene sequencing, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and fluorescence in-site hybridization have been described in the literature as being effective tools for the species identification of when performed on organisms recovered in culture. Other molecular methods for typing have also been applied to species. In one study evaluating the performance of intergenic dyad sequence (IDS)-PCR with 69 NTHi isolates, the assay demonstrated 65 different banding patterns that were epidemiologically classified as fingerprints similar to those obtained by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE).

TABLE 1

Differential characteristics of species

Indole, urease, and ornithine decarboxylase production are the basis for biotyping schemes with and as depicted in Table 2 .

A delayed positivereaction occurs in more than 90% of strains.

Delayed development of hemolysis occurs in 11 to 89% of strains.

Elevated concentrations of CO of ≥10% enhance growth.
