Economic healthcare costs of Clostridium difficile infection: a systematic review.
Economic healthcare costs of CDI were high for primary and recurrent cases, and the high cost justifies the use of additional resources for CDI prevention and control.
Virulence of three distinct Cryptosporidium parvum isolates for healthy adults.
Three Cryptosporidium parvum isolates of the C genotype differ in their infectivity for humans, and a trend toward a longer duration of diarrhea was seen for the TAMU versus UCP and Iowa isolates.

Global etiology of travelers' diarrhea: systematic review from 1973 to the present.
The regional differences in pathogen identification identified will serve as a baseline for antimicrobial therapy recommendations and vaccines strategies and help to understand the drivers of travelers' diarrhea.
Meta-analysis to assess risk factors for recurrent Clostridium difficile infection.
