  2. aVKM is all-Russian collection of microorganisms ( in which all strains under study are deposited
  3. bEMSUMD—A.I. Evdokimov Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry, Moscow, Russia; SCCH—Federal State Budgetary Inst. “Scientific Center of Children Health” of RAMS, Moscow, Russia; NACPP—National Agency for Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacy, Moscow, Russia
  4. cSome zones of inhibition (less than 14 mm) near OPT discs were observed for these strains under culturing in CO2 atmosphere, in contrast to culturing in air, where zones of inhibition were 18–20 mm and more
  5. dSerotypes of pneumococcal strains were determined by inspection of the nucleotide sequences of genes coding the fragments of capsules, in accordance with the CDC recommendation ( (see “Materials and methods”)
