Phenotypic and Molecular Study of Moraxella catarrhalis and their Virulence Genes in Patientswith Respiratory Infections
Keywords:Moraxella catarrhalis ,Virulence Genes PCR
This study aimed to investigate of Moraxella catarrhalis in respiratory tract and Virulence Genes. Sixteen
(60) swabs were collected from patients suffering from respiratory tract, and were submitted to Baghdad
medical city. The result ahowed three (5%) from 60(100%)patients suffering from respiratory tract positive
with Moraxella catarrhalis with the usp A1, cop B and omp CD. From this study concluded Moraxella
catarrhalis is pathogenic to man if it is isolated from respiratory tract , as well as usp A1 , cop B and omp
CD are common in all Moraxella catarrhalis isolates. So, future molecular studies were needed to compare
Moraxella isolated as normal flora or pathogen , antibiogram profile should be investigated at molecular
level and investigation on some virulence factors other than those studied in this thesis
