A study was conducted on the circulation of potentially diarrheagenic Escherichia coli in two groups of children, both under the age of seven. The first group (548 children) suffered from mild diarrhea and attended the Xipamanine Health Center of Maputo, in Mozambique. The second group (380 children) included randomly chosen, asymptomatic, children from the same population. A total of 503 E. coli strains were isolated from the two groups of children (n=375 and 128, respectively). All E. coli… Expand
High prevalence of enteroinvasive Escherichia coli isolated in a remote region of northern coastal Ecuador.
TLDR
EIEC exhibited similar risk-factor relationships with other pathotypes analyzed but different age-specific infection rates, and was the predominant diarrheagenic bacteria isolated in this community-based study. Expand
Genetic determinants of pathogenicity of Escherichia coli isolated from children with acute diarrhea in Maputo, Mozambique.
TLDR
This study revealed the complexity of the etiology of diarrhea caused by pathogenic E. coli in Mozambique, and the risk of the emergence of new pathogenic variants due to the horizontal transmission of pathogenicity factors. Expand
Molecular Characterization of Diarrheagenic Escherichia Coli in Children Less Than 5 Years of Age with Diarrhea in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso
TLDR
The use of multiplex PCR as a routine in clinical laboratory for the detection of DEC would be a useful mean for a rapid management of an acute diarrhea in children. Expand
Low frequency of enterohemorrhagic, enteroinvasive and diffusely adherent Escherichia coli in children under 5 years in rural Mozambique: a case-control study
TLDR
Although EHEC, DAEC and EIEC are less frequent in endemic diarrhea in rural Mozambique, attention should be given to their transmission dynamics (e.g. the role on sporadic or epidemic diarrhea) considering that the role of asymptomatic individuals as source of dissemination remains unknown. Expand
New insights into the epidemiology of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli infection.
TLDR
Current data suggests that atypical EPEC are more prevalent than typical EPEC in both developing and developed countries, and the duration of diarrhea in patients infected with atypICAL EPEC is significantly longer than that caused by other pathogens. Expand
Role of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli in childhood diarrhoea in Norway
TLDR
The aim of the study was to investigate the prevalence of EPEC and its epidemiological association with childhood diarrhoea in Norway, and to characterize the EPEC strains identified in the study by phenotypic and genotypic methods to search for bacterial factors statistically linked with diarrhoeal disease. Expand
Frequency and Antimicrobial Susceptibility of Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli Obtained from Patients with Acute Diarrhea in a Tertiary Care Hospital, Bangladesh
TLDR
The results revealed that ETEC and EAEC, had significant association with acute diarrhea and should be considered as potential pathogens. Expand

TLDR
Future diarrheal disease research needs to focus on broadening the repertoire of pathogens sought in epidemiological surveys to include multiple categories of diarrheagenic E. coli while building capacity to detect these pathogens in local reference laboratories. Expand
Pathotyping and Antibiotic Resistance Profiling of Escherichia coli Isolates from Children with Acute Diarrhea in Amatole District Municipality of Eastern Cape, South Africa
TLDR
Findings showed that DEC could be considered as the leading etiologic bacterial agent responsible for diarrhea in the study community, and the observable high degree of resistance of the isolates to antimicrobial agents is of huge significance, calling for stakeholders to adopt and consolidate the existing antimicrobial stewardship scheme of the government in order to ensure an uncompromised public health.

TLDR
Strains of all three E. coli colicategories showed high-level resistance to ampicillin, tetracycline, co-trimoxazole, and chloramphenicol but were highly susceptible to quinolones. Expand
Etiology of Acute Diarrhea in Adults in Southwestern Nigeria
TLDR
The study has demonstrated that E. histolytica and diarrheagenic E. coli are important diarrheal pathogens within the study area and that sporadic and epidemic EHEC infections occur in developing as well as developed countries. Expand
Virulence factors of lactose-negative Escherichia coli strains isolated from children with diarrhea in Somalia
TLDR
The uniformity of the antibiotic resistance pattern and of the plasmid DNA content, together with the fact that they were isolated in different years and in different children, suggests that the O4 strains must be epidemiologically relevant in Somalia. Expand

There are 4 recognized classes of Escherichia coli that cause diarrhoeal disease in humans: enteropathogenic (EPEC), enterotoxigenic (ETEC), enteroinvasive (EIEC), and enterohaemorrhagic E. coliExpand
Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli
TLDR
The current level of understanding of the pathogenesis of the diarrheagenic E. coli strains is discussed and how their pathogenic schemes underlie the clinical manifestations, diagnostic approach, and epidemiologic investigation of these important pathogens are described. Expand
Heterogeneous virulence of enteroaggregative Escherichia coli strains isolated from children in Southwest Nigeria.
TLDR
Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli strains appear to be of heterogeneous virulence, and data suggest that AAF/II may be a marker for pathogenic strains. Expand

TLDR
Diarrhea remains one of the main sources of morbidity and morbidity in today's world and a large proportion is caused by diarrheagenic Escherichia coli, a large and emerging problem without the availability of effective vaccines. Expand
