Molecular typing of Neisseria gonorrhoeae
In 2011, a pilot study was undertaken to assess the public health benefit of molecular surveillance for gonorrhoea in 21 EU/EEA countries. A total of 1 066 isolates collected under the 2010 European gonococcal antimicrobial surveillance programme were typed and 406 sequence types identified, with considerable diversity among countries.
