childhood diarrhoea in a low-income urban community in bangkok: incidence, clinical features, and child caretaker's behaviours.a one-year surveillance study of childhood diarrhoea in a low-income urban community in bangkok revealed an annual incidence of 2.2 episodes per child among infants, and that the overall annual incidence among children under five years of age was 0.9 per child. rotavirus, salmonella and campylobacter jejuni were common aetiologic agents. in children less than one year, diarrhoea was caused mostly by rotavirus and salmonella. in 1-2 year old children, the major causative agent was rotavirus while ...19911787280
importance of salmonellae and campylobacter jejuni in the etiology of diarrheal disease among children less than 5 years of age in a community in bangkok, thailand.the etiology of diarrhea in children less than 5 years of age in a low-income housing project in bangkok, thailand, was determined over 1 year. nontyphoidal salmonellae (13%), campylobacter jejuni (12%), rotavirus (12%), enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (7%), shigellae (6%), e. coli that hybridized with the enteropathogenic e. coli adherence factor probe (3%), and enteroinvasive e. coli (1%) were identified in 345 episodes of diarrhea in children less than 5 years of age. salmonellae were identi ...19902254427
viruses and bacteria in pediatric diarrhea in thailand: a study of multiple antibiotic-resistant enteric pathogens.children with diarrhea admitted to a rehydration ward of a children's hospital in bangkok were investigated to determine the prevalence of enteric pathogens, the extent of children's previous antibiotic therapy, and the frequency of plasmid-mediated antibiotic resistance among infecting bacteria. rotavirus (36%), enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (18%), shigella (9%), salmonella (6%), campylobacter jejuni/coli (4%), and vibrio cholerae (2%) infections were among 105 children with diarrhea. antibi ...19816275727
a longitudinal study of the prevalence of bacterial enteric pathogens among adults with diarrhea in bangkok, thailand.six hundred sixty adults with diarrhea treated at bamrasnaradura hospital, bangkok, thailand were investigated to determine the prevalence, seasonality, and severity of diarrhea associated with bacterial enteric pathogens in 1980 and 1981. shigella were isolated from 27% and vibrio parahaemolyticus from 19% of the patients studied. enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (5%), salmonella (3%), non-01 vibrio cholerae (3%), campylobacter jejuni (1%), and group f vibrio (less than 1%) were isolated from a ...19836370564

emerging fluoroquinolone and macrolide resistance of campylobacter jejuni and campylobacter coli isolates and their serotypes in thai children from 1991 to 2000.this study investigated fluoroquinolone, macrolide resistances and serotype distributions among campylobacter jejuni and campylobacter coli isolated from children in bangkok and rural settings during 1991-2000. phenotypic identification, serotyping, and susceptibility testing were performed by standard microbiological procedures. the predominant serotypes of c. jejuni were lior 36, 2 and 4 and of c. coli were lior 8, 29 and 55. resistance to nalidixic acid increased significantly during 1991-200 ...200717306054
erythromycin-resistant campylobacter infections in thailand.erythromycin therapy was compared with no treatment in a prospective trial of acute diarrheal disease among 100 infants in an orphanage in bangkok. within 24 h of the onset of diarrhea, 50 children received erythromycin ethylsuccinate (40 mg/kg per day) in four divided doses for 5 days. campylobacter jejuni isolated from 31, campylobacter coli isolated from 21, and shigella spp. isolated from 21 of 100 children were the most commonly recognized pathogens; use of a sensitive, nonselective method ...19873579261
