The Thailand Salmonella serovar project
Serotype data from 44 087 Salmonella isolates from humans and 26 148 from other sources from 1993 through 2002 in Thailand were analysed. The most common serovar causing human salmonellosis in Thailand was Salmonella enterica Weltevreden. Serovars causing human infections in Thailand differ from those in other countries and seem to be related to Salmonella serovars in different food products and reservoirs.

The Thailand phage typing project
In 2002, the WHO National Salmonella and Shigella Center, Department of Medical Science in Thailand, requested the Danish Institute for Food and Veterinary Research to phage type 79 Salmonella Typhimurium strains of human and animal origin during 2000-2001. Phage typing was performed to gain a better understanding of the prevalence of the different phage types of Typhimurium present in Thailand.
