travelers' diarrhea among united states military personnel during joint american-egyptian armed forces exercises in cairo, egypt.a study was conducted of travelers' diarrhea in a united states military population on deployment in cairo, egypt, during july and august 1987. acute diarrhea requiring medical attention developed in 183 (4%) of 4,500 troops. a possible etiologic agent was identified in 49% of all diarrhea cases. enteric pathogens associated with cases of diarrhea included: enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (17% st-producers, 13% lt-producers, and 3% lt/st-producers); shigella (9%); campylobacter spp. (2%); salmo ...19911900113
[significance of the occurrence of aeromonas of various biotypes in the third world].in investigations carried out in the refugee camps of the polisario (south algeria), in the neighbourhood of the inhabitants of the waste disposal sites of cairo and in the ayoun el atrous and nema (mauritania) regions also in the bida and minna hospitals. aeromonas hydrophila and aeromonas spec. were repeatedly found in the investigated material. therefore, it was of particular interest for us to investigate this type of organism.19892641444
[water studies of inhabitants of refuse disposal sites in cairo. 1].in two waste disposal sites in cairo, drinking water samples from springs, drinking vessels and kitchens were investigated. total germ count lay seldom below one thousand and ten million pro ml. apart from various faecal germs, aeromonas hydrophila was also found. the high occurrence of diarrhoeal diseases among the inhabitants of the waste disposal sites can be traced with certainty to the extremely bad drinking water quality.19892641445
microbiological quality of drinking water at eight water treatment plants.eight drinking water treatment plants were sampled monthly during one year to evaluate the removal of bacterial indicators, new indicators and some pathogenic bacteria. six plants are allocated along the nile river at cairo segment and the two others on ismailia canal. in this study many parameters were determined; the classical bacterial indicators (total bacterial counts at 22 and 37 degrees c, total coliforms, faecal coliforms and faecal streptococci) show the same trend in all plant intakes ...200111798415
microbiological profile of raw nile water.with the increase of population on the nile banks, a remarkable increase in industrial, agricultural, human activities, and recreational activities have also occurred. the effluents of such activities are discharged directly into the nile or through some agricultural drains which finally discharge their wastes into the nile. thus, the microbiological monitoring is one of the main objectives to protect the river nile. this study was conducted to determine the microbiological profile of river nile ...199817217019
