Abstract: Nosocomial distribution of Serratia marcescens at two university hospitals was studied by bacteriocin typing and antibiogram from January 1981 to July 1983, and the results were compared. The 126 strains isolated from Medical College Hospital of Oita (MCHO) consisted mainly of bacteriocin types 4 (29%), 9 (23%), 52 (19%) and 42 (6%) , and the 86 from Nagasaki University Hospital (NUH) were mainly of types 14 (20%) , 4 (17%), 9 (12%) and 26 (12%); these four types amounted to 77% and 61% respectively. Types 4 and 9 which formed a high proportion of isolates at both hospitals were apparently the most common bacteriocin types. Using 154 strains of the bacteriocin types 4 , 9, 14, 26, 42 and 52 of S. marcescens, antibiogram with 13 antimicrobial agents was tested. The strains isolated from MCHO were found to be more resistant than those from NUH. The isolates of S. marcescens at each hospital showed characteristic , different distribution in bacteriocin type and antibiogram. The close relation was not always observed between antibiograms and bacteriocin types.
