Abstract

Toxigenic Escherichia coli of human and animal origin have been classified into three categories: enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC), verotoxigenic E. coli (VTEC), and necrotoxigenic E. coli (NTEC), ETEC are a major cause of infant diarrhoea in less-developed countries and frequently cause colibacillosis in domestic animals.
