The role of enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) in childhood diarrhoea in New Caledonia was demonstrated in previous epidemiological works. This study was undertaken in order to characterize these strains and to determine whether bacterial components of current vaccine candidates (toxin, colonization factor antigens, O:H antigens) would be useful in our(More)
We report the use of seven acetylaminofluorene (AAF)-labeled DNA probes in evaluating the incidence of various Escherichia coli pathotypes in New Caledonia among 448 children with acute diarrhea (1,278 E. coli pathotypes studied) and 88 controls (264 E. coli pathotypes studied) in 1990. Diarrheogenic E. coli were detected using cloned gene probes for(More)
