Clonal relationships and extended virulence genotypes among Escherichia coli isolates from women with a first or recurrent episode of cystitis.


To identify bacterial predictors of recurrence and/or persistence in acute cystitis, extended virulence genotypes were compared with clonal background and epidemiologic status among 74 Escherichia coli urine isolates from women with first or recurrent episodes of urinary tract infection (UTI). Sequential isolates from patients with recurrent UTI were… (More)
