One hundred Escherichia coli isolates from human septicemia were characterized with respect to O serogroups 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 15, 18, 75 and 78, alpha-hemolysin, carboxylesterase B typing, cytotoxic necrotizing factor, F165 and CS31A fimbrial antigens, aerobactin production, colicins, and antibiotic sensitivity. A factorial analysis of correspondence and chi 2 tests indicated that most of E. coli isolates belonging to the studied O serogroups were positive for the virulence factors or markers… CONTINUE READING
