This study investigated the phenotypic and genotypic characteristics of 39 C. concisus isolates from Danish patients with diarrhoea, three isolates from healthy individuals and the type strain. A cytolethal distending toxin (CDT)-like effect on Vero cells was observed in 35 (90{\%}) isolates from patients with diarrhoea, in all three isolates from healthy individuals and in the type strain. Analysis of SDS-PAGE protein profiles and PCR amplification of 23S rDNA assigned the isolates into two distinct, but discordant groups.

Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis with three primers identified 37 unique profiles, but requires further evaluation. The isolates obtained from healthy carriers were distinguished by cluster analysis from the isolates obtained from patients with diarrhoea.
