Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) is an important agent of diarrhoeal diseases worldwide. The role of EAEC virulence factors in the clinical outcome of infection is not completely defined. This case-control study investigated the prevalence of EAEC, its virulence genes and the antimicrobial resistance profile of adult patients with and without diarrhoea attending three different hospitals in Zanjan, Iran. A total of 550 individual stool specimens (350 from diarrhoeal patients and 200… CONTINUE READING
