Since the first documented outbreak of hemorrhagic colitis caused by Escherichia coli O157:H7 in 1982, numerous publications have demonstrated or proposed putative components implicated in the pathogenesis of this gastrointestinal infection. Indeed, Escherichia coli O157:H7 pathogenesis is linked to several potential virulent factors such as verotoxins (or Shiga-like toxins), components implicated in attaching/effacing of microvilli, and the enterohemolysin phenotypes. Defining the precise… CONTINUE READING
