We investigated whether insertion of urinary catheters that had been coated with Escherichia coli HU2117 could establish bladder colonization with this nonvirulent organism. Ten of 12 subjects were successfully colonized for 14 days or more. The rate of symptomatic UTI during colonization was 0.15 per 100 patient-days.
