Pathogenesis of Salmonella depends upon a large number of factors controlled by an array of genes that synergise into actual virulence. The goal of this study was to detectSalmonella invA, spiC and sipC directly from clinical specimens, using the dot blot hybridization assay. We detected invA, spiC and sipC as a one combination from 4.5% (95% CI: 2.21 to 8.64) human feacal and 35.2% (95% CI: 26.4 to 45.0) poultry samples after enrichment. Furthermore the dot blot method had a higher sensitivity than routine culture, before and after enrichment. These results indicate that dot blot hybridization may be used to directly detect Salmonella invA, spiC and sipC in clinical samples.
Key words: Salmonella, dot-blot hybridization, spiC, sipC, invA, clinical-samples.
