We examined 138 Escherichia coli strains isolated from cultures of blood specimens from urosepsis patients (n = 78) and nonurosepsis patients (n = 30) and from fecal specimens of a healthy control group (n = 30) for P fimbriation with a mannose-resistant hemagglutination test, an indirect immunofluorescence assay, and a new commercial particle agglutination… CONTINUE READING
