Throat and/or skin isolates exhibiting highest invasion efficiency than blood isolates have been reported (28), however, GAS from invasive and non invasive diseases adhered to and penetrated equally well into HEp-2 cells (29).
However, a few isolates exhibiting high invasion efficiency indicate that GAS throat cultures can also lead to invasive diseases.
