Spanish term or phrase: Tifico O, Tífico H
These terms appear on a Laboratory Analysis from Mexico under Serological Reactions. The analysis were done as part of a import-export proposal so show that the facilities and workers did not carry any transferable diseases.

I believe tífico is typhus or typhous in English, but do not know how to translate "O" and "H". Any help/corrections would be very much appreciated. Thankyou!

Are you sure it is "typhus" and not "salmonella typhi"?
