Main Article

Figure

Prevalence over time of 12 high-prevalence XbaI pulsotypes among 579 Escherichia coli ST131 isolates. High-prevalence pulsotypes are those with >6 isolates (>1% of population) each. Years before 2003 are combined into 3 groups because of the small numbers of isolates. On the x-axis, the number of isolates for the particular period is shown in parentheses below the dates. y-axis prevalence values are based on the total number of isolates in the particular period.
