Profile 1) representative isolates from the 2007 outbreak, including 32 isolates with azithromycin MIC >256 mg/L by Etest and 2 isolates with azithromycin MIC <16 mg/L. Profile 2) 6 representative isolates from sporadic cases (2003–2006) with azithromycin MIC <16 mg/L. Profile 3) representative isolate Shi 03-3580 from 2003 outbreak with azithromycin MIC <16 mg/L by Etest. Profile 4) representative isolate Shi 02-9633 from 2002 outbreak with azithromycin MIC <16 mg/L by Etest.
