Abstract:

Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli EPEC was isolated from 11 of 148 Among children under 1 year old with diarrhea at a refugee camp in northern Thailand. The prevalence of EPEC infections in Thailand was determined in children less than 1year old with and without diarrhea. EPEC isolates were examined for heat-liable enterotoxins LT and heat-stable enterotoxins ST production, enteroinvasiveness, mannose-resistant adherence to HeLa cells, and hybridization with the EAF probe.
