Previously, we reported that minocycline, kanamycin and norfloxacin improved the survival rate in the E32511 model that we developed (FEMS Immunol Med Microbiol 26, 101-108, 1999), but fosfomycin did not. In this study, we investigated the effectiveness of azithromycin (AZM) against Stx2d-producing EHEC O91:H21 strain B2F1 or Stx2c-producing Escherichia(More)
Rats are known to be the most important reservoirs of Leptospira spp. However, the leptospiral dose and age at which rats become resistant to Leptospira infection are not yet well elucidated. Aimed to characterize leptospirosis in rat pups, we found that suckling pups (4-, 7-, and 14-day old) are susceptible to leptospires and resistance starts from the(More)
An 11­year­old boy was admitted to our hospital with the chief complaint of a generalized tonic seizure which was preceded by projectile vomiting, six hours prior to his admission. There was no previous history of such complaint. The patient's right arm and right leg were rigid and extended while his left arm and left leg were rigid and flexed. Five years(More)
Leptospirosis is a worldwide zoonosis. The importance of urban leptospirosis is recognized in Japan: urban rats carry pathogenic leptospires and people acquire these pathogens through contact with surface water or soil contaminated by the urine of the infected animals. To determine the current Leptospira carriage rate in urban rats, 29 wild rats were(More)
A large outbreak of Shiga toxin (Stx)-producing enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) O104:H4 occurred in northern Germany. From this outbreak, at least 900 patients developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), resulting in more than 50 deaths. Thirty percent of the HUS patients showed encephalopathy. We previously established a mouse model with(More)
