Prevention and control of enterohaemorrhagic escherichia coli (EHEC) infections : memorandum from a WHO meeting / A. Reilly on behalf of the WHO Consultation on Prevention and Control of Enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) Infections [Geneva, 28 April to 1 May 1997] Reilly, A (1998)
Shebib, Z.A.; Abdul Ghani, Z.G.; Mahdi, L.Kh. (2003)We determined the prevalence of enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli, especially E. coli O157, and other enteropathogens among 200 children with bloody diarrhoea and 100 age-matched controls at two Baghdad hospitals. Bacterial and parasitic agents were found in 39.5% and 28.5% of cases, respectively; no pathogen was detected in 32%. E. coli O157 was identified in 11.5% and more than one pathogen was found in 15.5% of cases. The most common pathogens were enteropathogenic E. coli [EPEC] [5%]; E. coli other than E. coli O157 or EPEC [15%]; Entamoeba ...
Detection and characterization of verotoxin-producing strains among sorbitol non-fermenting Escherichia coli Jafari, A.; Katouli, M.; Shokouhi, F.; Bouzari, S. (2001)The presence of genes for verotoxin 1 and 2 [VT1 and 2] among sorbitol non-fermenting Escherichia coli isolates from diarrhoeal cases was assessed using polymerase chain reaction assay. Of 60 [88%] positive isolates, 37 [62%] harboured VT1 and 23 [38%] both VT1 and VT2. In HeLa cell adherence assay, 48 [71%] isolates exhibited mannose-resistant adherence to HeLa cells. Multidrug resistance was observed in 56 [82%] isolates, with ampicillin, chloramphenicol, streptomycin, sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim and tetracycline pattern being the most common. ...
