Escherichia coli strains that produce Shiga toxin 2 (Stx2) are isolated from hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) cases more frequently than are strains that produce both Shiga toxin 1 (Stx1) and Stx2, whereas strains that produce only Stx1 are rarely isolated from HUS cases. Studies have implicated Stx2 as the sole contributor to acute kidney failure and other systemic complications in humans. The aim of the present study was to determine whether Stx2-specific antibody would be as effective against… CONTINUE READING
