Poi Poi 1942
The strain was isolated in 1941 by Mino (1942) from a patient suffering from leptospirosis in Italy and designated as Poi. By comparative serological studies Wolff (1953) found that the strain showed a strong serological relationship with Veldrat Batavia 46. Preliminary absorption tests proved the close affinity between those strains. The strain already appeared in the list of 1954 (Wolff and Broom) as a separate serovar. This was confirmed by Kmety (1963), who studied the strain by factor analysis.
