Hemorrhagic fever caused by a novel tick-borne Bunyavirus in Huaiyangshan, China.
A novel tick-borne Bunyavirus causing life-threatening hemorrhagic fever in humans has emerged in the Huaiyangshan mountain areas of China and is likely to be closely related to the viruses of the genus Phlebovirus. Expand
Cytolethal Distending Toxin in Escherichia coli O157:H7: Spectrum of Conservation, Structure, and Endothelial Toxicity
Cytolethal distending toxin V (CDT-V) was expressed in all but two cdt-V+ strains and was lethal to cultured endothelial cells and should be included as a marker to differentiate E. coli O157:H7 even within the same phage type. Expand
Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli in Yaks (Bos grunniens) from the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, China
This study was the first report on occurrence and characteristics of STEC isolated from yaks (Bos grunniens) from the Qinghai-Tibetan plateau, China, and extended the genetic diversity and reservoir host range of ST EC. Expand

Investigating whether B. pertussis and Bordetella parapertussis can colonize the nasopharynx of healthy school children in China found that asymptomatic B. parapertussedis infections are more prevalent than previously documented. Expand
A new subtype of eastern tick-borne encephalitis virus discovered in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, China
A new subtype of TBEV is discovered in wild rodent Marmota himalayana in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in China, proposed as subtype Himalayan (Him-TBEV), supported by comparative analysis using nucleotide and amino acid sequences of E protein and polyprotein. Expand
Recycling of Shiga Toxin 2 Genes in Sorbitol-Fermenting Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:NM
It is concluded that the yecE gene in SF E. coli O157:NM is a hot spot for excision and integration of Shiga toxin 2-encoding bacteriophages and represents a highly dynamic system that can convert in both directions by the loss and gain of stx2-harboring phages. Expand
Dynamics of fecal microbial communities in children with diarrhea of unknown etiology and genomic analysis of associated Streptococcus lutetiensis
The sequences of the 16S rRNA genes extracted from fecal samples provide insights into the dynamics of fecal microflora and found pathogenic islands and virulence genes in the genome of S. lutetiensis and S. pasteurianus. Expand
Reducing exposure to avian influenza H7N9
The sequential reports of H7N9 infections in the rest of the country suggest transmissions of the viruses over a large area spanning several cities and provinces, and in view of the importance of the poultry population, the virus could continue to spread. Expand
Landscape of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases in China: impact of ecology, climate, and behavior
This review summarizes the current experiences and lessons from China in managing emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, especially the effects of ecology, climate, and behavior, which should have merits in helping other countries to control and prevent infectious diseases. Expand

Isolates from goat and mutton exhibited close genetic relatedness with those from human-derived isolates, providing evidence that transmission may have occurred locally within intraspecies or interspecies, and importantly, from animal reservoirs, or raw meats to humans. Expand
