Strains of Escherichia coli, hybridising with a DNA probe for enteroaggregative E. coli (EAggEC), were isolated from patients with infectious intestinal disease (IID) or gastro-enteritis, and healthy controls during the study of IID in England. Of 3506 cases presenting with an IID, 160 (4.6%) had faecal EAgg-EC as compared with 46 (1.7%) of 2772 healthy controls, 53% of EAggEC isolated from each of the ‘case’ and the ‘control’ groups adhered in a ‘stacked-brick’ formation. Strains from cases… CONTINUE READING
