Malaya H 6 1955
The strain was isolated from a patient in Malaysia and described as a new serovar named malaya, ref. strain H 6 (Alexander et al., 1955). It appeared already in the list of 1965 (WHO, 1965) as a recognized serovar. The strain was submitted to factor analysis and it was suggested that it should be placed in the subgroup Schueffneri (Kmety, 1967).
Serovar Malaya, strain H6 has been placed in species L. inadai based on DNA homology studies (Brenner et al., 1999) but after several contradicting findings the strain was reclassified to species L. interrogans (Victoria et al., 2008)
