comments on the ecology and epidemiology of yersinia enterocolitica in czechoslovakia.on the basis of the information disseminated by the reference laboratory in 1968, the microbiological diagnosis of yersinia enterocolitica (ye) was gradually mastered by all czechoslovak microbiological laboratories. the most frequent serotype isolated in man was ye 03. isolation predominated from cases of diarrhoea, less often from appendectomies, and only one case of septicaemia was described. usually only sporadic cases occur and outbreaks are rare. a few strains of ye 05 were found in diarrh ...1979535370
yersinia enterocolitica: a significant 'new' pathogen.it thrives in the cold, defies conventional culture methods, does not respond to most antibiotics, and may mimic other disorders in its manifestations. fortunately, most cases of yersinial enterocolitis are mild and self-limiting, but infection can be life-threatening, especially in neonates or when immunologic defenses are impaired. clinical and laboratory diagnostic criteria and epidemiologic clues are described.1978730137
[bacteriocinogeny in yersinia enterocolitica].bacteriocinogeny was found in 19.8 per cent of y. enterocolitica strains tested. it was designated by the authors as enterocoliticacinogeny and the substance produced by the pathogen was named enterocoliticacine. bacteriocinogeny was found among the collection strains isolated in the south primorye and not among the strains isolated abroad. some cultures of y. enterocolitica isolated abroad and in the south primorye were used as indicator strains for revealing enterocoliticacinogeny. enterocolit ...19751091204
biotypes and sensitivity screening yersinia enterocolitica as an infective agent in man and swine in nigeria.diarrhoeic faecal samples from 210 humans and 192 swine were screened for yersinia enterocolitica in 1990. ten and 8 y. enterocolitica strains were isolated from pig and man, respectively. the isolates were found to belong to wauter's biotypes 1, 2, 3 and 4. biotype 2 was isolated mainly from human stool samples. biotype 3 was found only in swine while biotypes 1 and 4 were isolated from both man and swine. all the 18 strains showed varying degrees of sensitivity to antibiotics used in this inve ...19921301624
possible confounders of the relationship between occupational swine contact and yersinia enterocolitica 0:3 and 0:9 antibodies.increased risk of high yersinia enterocolitica 0:3 and 0:9 antibody content has been previously reported in occupations with swine contact. in this study several possible confounders of this elevated risk among pig farmers and abattoir workers were considered. only in three instances the standardized risk ratio was decreased close to unity, namely after the standardization of y. enterocolitica 0:3 igg antibody positivity for age among abattoir workers, after the standardization of y. enterocolit ...19921397221
detection of pathogenic yersinia enterocolitica by polymerase chain reaction and digoxigenin-labeled polynucleotide probes.yersinia enterocolitica is widespread in nature, but only a few bioserotypes are involved in human infections. pigs are considered to be the major reservoirs of pathogenic strains. it is essential to have an accurate and rapid method for the detection of pathogenic yersiniae. to achieve this objective, 19-base synthetic oligonucleotide primers were used in a polymerase chain reaction (pcr) to detect the ail gene (which is conserved only in pathogenic strains) in strains of y. enterocolitica and ...19921400967
