Enteropathogens were investigated in 406 children aged 0-3 years with diarrhoea attending the Salles Neto Municipal Hospital. Enteric bacterial pathogens were isolated from 49 per cent of the children. Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) (20.9 per cent), enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC) (16.5 per cent), rotavirus (11.6 per cent), and Campylobacter (9.9 per cent) were the most common agents. Among clinical features, vomiting and fever were significantly associated with Rotavirus isolation (50… Expand
Frequency and characteristics of diarrhoeagenic Escherichia coli strains isolated from children with and without diarrhoea in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The higher incidence ofEAEC, the most frequent DEC category, among children with diarrhoea, suggests a potential role of EAEC as an important enteric pathogen in the community investigated. Expand

Children´s diarrhea in Hanoi, Vietnam : Importance of enteric pathogens
A detailed microbiological investigation of some potential pathogens associated with diarrhea, to characterize the isolates, and to assess clinical symptoms and the epidemiological factors related to the diarrheal disease in children less than 5 years of age in Hanoi, Vietnam was performed. Expand
Human Campylobacteriosis in Developing Countries1
This work presents the distinguishing epidemiologic and clinical features of Campylobacter enteritis in developing countries relative to developed countries and suggests national surveillance programs and international collaborations are needed to address the substantial gaps in the knowledge about the epidemiology of campylobacteriaiosis in developing nations.

The structures of Escherichia coli O-polysaccharide antigens.
A database of the structures of O-antigenic polysaccharides has been created and a ranking is produced based on similarity, which facilitates rapid identification of strains that are difficult to serotype (if known) based on classical agglutinating methods. Expand
