Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAggEC) are diarrheal pathogens defined by aggregative adherence to HEp-2 cells. In an effort to identify pathogenic EAggEC isolates, four groups of 5 volunteers were fed 1 of 4 different EAggEC strains, each at a dose of 10(10) cfu. Strain 042 caused diarrhea in 3 of 5 adults; 3 other EAggEC isolates (17-2, 34b, and JM221) failed to elicit diarrhea. A gene encoding enterotoxin EAST1 was found in strains 042 and 17-2 but not 34b or JM221; a 108-kDa cytotoxin… CONTINUE READING
