BACKGROUND A great deal of evidence indicates a link between Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Crohn's disease in adult patients, but there is lack of information on the association of these bacilli with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) among children. OBJECTIVES The study was carried out to determine the distribution of phylogenetic group, the adherence(More)
The association between Escherichia coli virulence factors and chronic intestinal disorders is mostly unknown. The presented study compared the distribution of virulence genes and phylogroups among E. coli isolated from chronic intestinal disorders such as Crohn's disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) with strains isolated from patients with acute(More)
On animal models enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) can cause mild, but significant mucosal damage, suggesting the invasive capability of these strains. In the study we investigated the ability of typical, aggR-positive and atypical, aggR-negative EAEC isolates to enter intestinal epithelial Int407 cells in relation to the distribution of genes(More)
BACKGROUND Escherichia coli remains the principal bacterial pathogen in childhood diarrhea and constitutes an important public health problem, especially in developing countries. Diarrheagenic E. coli strains often display resistance to beta-lactams due to the production of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs). OBJECTIVES A total of thirty(More)
